‘Hype sabko karo’: Sehwag’s cryptic post after Jurel’s heroic knock


NEW DELHI: The ongoing Test series between India and England has seen the emergence of the young Indian stars, who stepped up in the absence of the likes of

delivered with the bat when the chips were down for the team.

Jaiswal joined Indian batting legends Sunil Gavaskar, Virat Kohli, Rahul Dravid as well as Dilip Sardesai to score more than 600 runs in a Test series while Sarfaraz made a memorable debut with two half-centuries in the third Test at Rajkot.

It was Jurel’s heroic knock of 90 runs in the first innings of the fourth Test in Ranchi that helped India recover to post 307 in response to England’s 353.

highlighted the wicket-keeper batter’s exceptional temperament. However, he raised a question about certain players not receiving the media hype they deserve.

“No media hype, no drama, just some outstanding skills and quietly showed great temperament in a very difficult situation. Very Well done Dhruv Jurel. Best wishes,” Sehwag posted on X.
“Not to degrade or demean anyone, but hype should be on performance and be equal. Some guys have bowled brilliantly, some have batted exceptionally but haven’t got the hype they deserve. Akash Deep was outstanding here, Yashasvi has been brilliant through the series and so was Sarfaraz at Rajkot and Dhruv Jurel in all his opportunities. Hype sabko karo,” he further wrote.
Talking about the match, India reached 40 for no loss at stumps on the third day in their pursuit of 192. India will take an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series if they knock off the required 152 runs on Monday.
At close of play, skipper Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal were batting on 24 and 16 respectively.
Senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (5/51) and left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav (4/22) shared nine wickets between them to run through the England line-up in their second innings on a pitch offering the slow bowlers enough help.
England were bowled out for 145 in their second essay.
