Former batsman Aakash Chopra has raised questions as to why Dhruv Jurel has been included in the Indian team instead of Sarfaraz Khan and Ishan Kishan for the first two Tests against England. Let us tell you, India has to play the first Test of the 5-match Test series against England starting from January 25 in Hyderabad.

The Indian team has been announced for the first two Tests of this series, in which along with KL Rahul and KS Bharat, young wicketkeeper batsman Dhruv Jurel has also been included. Aakash Chopra shared a video on his official YouTube channel in which he raised questions as to why Dhruv Jurel got a place in the Indian team instead of Sarfaraz Khan and Ishan Kishan.

Aakash Chopra said in the video shared on his official YouTube channel, ‘Dhruv Jurel has not played much first class cricket. He has played only 15 matches and scored 790 runs in 19 innings. Yes, his best scores have been near 250 and 46.50 is not a bad average. He has scored one century and five half-centuries.

If seen this way, is this performance good for Test cricket? And if so, what should Sarfaraz do? Should we assume that unless Kishan goes into first class cricket and scores runs, he will not be included in the Indian team?

The former player further said, ‘Dhruv Jurel’s selection was quite surprising. First of all, I don’t watch him play at all. KL Rahul will not play as wicketkeeper. Catches were dropped in South Africa too, anyone can drop catches but if you are playing against Ashwin, Jadeja and Axar, then you will have to take catches.
