Future of Indian Test cricket is secure, the series was won on the strength of these 4 young players

Concerns regarding succession lingered for the BCCI and the team management, particularly in Test cricket following the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. In the five Test matches against England, the Indian selectors gave the younger players opportunities because of this. These young people also did not let down, and Team India won three of the four tests thanks to their outstanding performance. With their impressive batting performances against England, Sarfaraz Khan, Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and wicketkeeper-batsman Dhruv Jurel gave assurances that Indian Test cricket is in capable hands.

In four tests against England, opener Yashasvi has amassed 655 runs, including two double-hundreds and two half-hundreds. He demonstrated his physical prowess by playing lengthy innings as the opener. There is a good combination of defence and aggression in his batting.

Shubman Gill's batting has had ups and downs recently, but his talent was always apparent. He has frequently understood his responsibilities in the last four Test matches, batted wisely, and amassed 342 runs, including a century.

After making a lot of runs in domestic matches, Sarfaraz went on to score a half-century in his very first test. Despite his inability to contribute significantly to the fourth Test match, he demonstrated his long-term ability to play for India.

India was searching for a wicketkeeper who could play significant innings at the lower order following Rishabh Pant's injury. That has been filled by Jurel. His batting displayed a blend of patience, understanding, and aggression.
