Rahul Dravid's motivational punch as Shubman Gill bounces back from the verge of getting dropped

Following his and Dhruv Jurel's crushing of India in Ranchi, Shubman Gill was likened to Rahul Dravid and Cheteshwar Pujara. In order to lead India to a five-wicket victory in Ranchi on Day 4 of the fourth Test match between India and England, Shubman Gill and Dhruv Jurel had to perform above expectations. India's opening pair, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal, have already amassed 84 runs in the first eighteen overs of their 192-run total. But when Gill was joined in the middle by Jurel, there was an unexpected burst of wickets, and England were now well-positioned.

But the two remained composed as they pushed their way toward the objective. Known for being a productive ODI and T20I player, Gill collected powerful strokes and nearly completed his fifty without hitting a boundary. The Indians didn't score a four or a six for more than thirty overs. India was carried to victory by the unbeaten 72 off 136 balls that Gill and Jurel shared throughout their partnership.

Cheteshwar Pujara and India's head coach Rahul Dravid, who both notably claimed the No. 3 place, were compared to Gill after his innings. Following the game, the 24-year-old shared an encouraging remark on Instagram, citing Dravid as the source. And who else, if not you? When, if not now, will this happen? The quotation says.

Jurel and Gill eliminate England from the series

India won the home series for the record-tying 17th time in a row on Monday thanks to their spirited victory. It came against a determined England side that gave them a serious scare by winning the opening Test and going toe-to-toe with India for the majority of the remaining matches in the series. During the first two days of the fourth Test, England was actually well ahead, but the hosts were able to regain control thanks to a remarkable bowling effort by India headed by Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav, as well as Jurel's opening innings century of 90 off 149 balls.

Ben Stokes, the captain of England, continued to deploy his fielders aggressively on Day 4, positioning them all over the circle, which was effective for his team. India lost wickets quickly after each other, going from 84/0 to half-down for 120. England managed to rally thanks in part to the aggressive field, but Gill and Jurel quickly neutralized the threat. They had trouble rotating strikes at first, but later they began to locate gaps more frequently. Gill reached his half-century in 123 deliveries after hitting two sixes in three balls after scoring 39 runs in 119 balls.
