“A salute,” Netizens hail Dhruv Jurel’s match-saving knock; the batsman’s gesture after 50 goes viral

Dhruv Jurel missed his maiden hundred against England in 4th test while chasing 350+ runs but won praise by fans for his effort heartwarming gesture after scoring half-century.

Dhruv Jurel showed his masterclass against England in the 4th test when India lost early wickets while chasing 350 + runs in the first innings. Yashasvi Jaiswal remained the only to-order batsman to score 73 runs before the middle-order collapsed like a pack of cards, Shubman Gill (38), Rajat Patidar (17), Ravindra Jadeja (12), and Sarfaraz Khan (14).

Dhruv Jurel missed his much deserving century but came to India’s rescue by scoring 90 runs to reduce England’s seemingly huge lead of 100+ runs to 46 runs. India is back to chances of winning the test match if it reduces the England to 150 runs on a wicket that is unpredictable.
