Dhruv Jurel, son of a military officer, has joined the Indian Test cricket squad for the forthcoming series against England.

Dhruv Jurel is part of the Indian squad that has been named for the first two Test matches against England.

Dhruv Jurel gained his place in the Indian Test team by performing well in local competitions and while representing the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League.

On January 25, the Test series against England kicks off, and Dhruv Jurel is in the team.

Dhruv made the decision to play cricket instead of enlisting in the army, which is admirable given his father's wish for him to join the military.

When the BCCI announced the removal of numerous prominent players on Friday night, everyone was taken aback by Dhruv Jurel's inclusion.

Nem Singh Jurel, Dhruv's father, was an army veteran who fought in the Kargil War and expressed his want for his son to attend the National Defence Academy.

In 19 innings of action in first-class matches, Dhruv Jurel has amassed 790 runs, which includes five half-centuries and a century.
