Indian cricket team batter Rinku Singh took to social media to share an emotional message for Dhruv Jurel after the youngster slammed a brilliant half-century on Day 3 of the fourth Test match against England in Ranchi on Sunday. Rinku shared an old picture with Jurel along with the caption – “Mere bhai, sapne saakaar karane ka samay aa gaya hai (My brother, it’s time to make dreams come true)”. Both cricketers play for Uttar Pradesh in domestic cricket and earlier, Jurel had revealed that Rinku is his teammate and over the years, they have developed a camaraderie between them.

Dhruv Jurel hit a defiant 90 before England bowled out India for 307 to lead by 46 runs on day three of the fourth Test in Ranchi on Sunday.

Shoaib Bashir took one wicket in the morning session to complete his first five-wicket haul in Tests.

Fellow spinner Tom Hartley bowled Jurel to wrap up the innings on the stroke of lunch.


Resuming at 219-7 on Sunday morning, Jurel extended the eighth-wicket partnership with Kuldeep Yadav to 76 to frustrate England, who made 353 in their first innings.

James Anderson broke the stand when Kuldeep, on 28, played on to give the veteran seamer his 698th Test wicket.

The 41-year-old is now two victims away from becoming just the third bowler to take 700 wickets in Tests, after Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and the late Australian great Shane Warne (708).

Jurel, who made his debut in the third Test in Rajkot, hit six fours and four sixes in his 149-ball stay and picked up his maiden Test half-century.

The 23-year-old is the latest talented new player to shine for India in the absence of the experienced Virat Kohli and KL Rahul.
