Dhruv Jurel, a wicketkeeper-batsman for the Rajasthan Royals, has said that former Indian captain MS Dhoni urged him to be prepared for a difficult assignment while batting at numbers 6 and 7. MS Dhoni referred to it as a thankless role, according to Jurel, because the batting order frequently collapses before numbers 6 and 7 come in to bat.
Dhruv, who has played wicketkeeper opener since he was young, was given the role of a finisher by the Rajasthan Royals. The young player has adapted to the position with ease and has played a few crucial innings to help his team win from the most hopeless situations, much like his idol from childhood, MS Dhoni.

“MS Dhoni is my idol too”- Dhruv Jurel
Dhruv Jurel, a wicketkeeper-batsman for the Rajasthan Royals, admits that the number he bats at in the IPL is a ‘thankless’ job, but he is determined to focus on the task that has been assigned to him by the team administration.
“I was very curious to find the mentality of MS bhai (MS Dhoni). I spoke to him about it and asked him that you bat at 6-7 and you are very consistent about it. So, he simply told me that it’s a very thankless position. You don’t know how the bowler is going. The only way you can master this position is that you need to practice like that. You have to understand the situation well and it helped me a lot. He is my idol too” Dhruv Jurel said In an exclusive chat with CricketNext.
Dhoni’s beliefs and attributes have become a model for aspiring cricketers, and it is fascinating to witness the next generation of Indian cricket.
