Sunil Gavaskar Made Huge Claims On Team India Triumph

Following India’s impressive Test series win over England, legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar praised young talents who stepped up in the absence of star players in the team. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sarfaraz Khan, and Dhruv Jurel who have showcased their skills, proving that they are more than capable of securing a spot in playing XI.

Notably, star players including Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, and Jasprit Bumrah missed at various stages, then also India secured an unassailable 3-1 lead in the test series against England. The standout performers have been the young guns, with Yashasvi Jaiswal leading the charge with an impressive 655 runs, including two double-hundreds.

Shubman Gill, an established player, made a significant impact with his gritty century in the Vizag Test, setting up a challenging target for England. Sarfaraz Khan, making his debut in the third Test, earned applause with back-to-back fifties. Dhruv Jurel’s remarkable 90-run knock in the fourth Test also played a crucial role in India’s success.

Gavaskar draws parallels between this series and India’s historic win in Australia during the 2020/21 tour, emphasizing that a team effort is vital. He warns senior players that these victories send a clear message – the team can succeed with or without big names.

“India missed a lot of big names in Australia, but they still managed to pull off a fantastic win not just in Gabba but also in Melbourne. Winning in Melbourne after being bowled out for 36, battling hard to save the Sydney Test – the courage, stamina, grit, and determination that the young Indian players showed during that Australia tour were visible this time around against England,” Gavaskar stated. “That’s why I always say, you don’t need big names. Cricket is a team sport. It doesn’t depend on one individual.”
