India's wicket-keeper batter, Dhruv Jurel recently opened up and revealed that he was rooting for South Africa to win the T20 World Cup 2024 final against India in Barbados in a hilarious 'reverse-jinx' method.

In a video released by BCCI's official Twitter account, Jurel can be seen talking about his insane inverse logic while watching the final, how he did not want to jinx India's chances of winning the match, hence he was telling everyone that South Africa would lift their maiden World Cup.

"I was thinking that if I say India will win, then SA might win. So, I was saying SA will win, and eventually India won. I was celebrating like a kid after that," Jurel chuckled.

Meanwhile, India is all set to begin their next chapter against Zimbabwe with a 5-match T20I series slated to begin from 6 July at the Harare Sports Club.

Previously, BCCI announced Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Shivam Dube, to be a part of the series were set to leave for Zimbabwe from Barbados, however, the cyclone interrupted their plans and they instead travelled to India.

However, BCCI has made changes to the 15-member squad adding Harshit Rana, Sai Sudarshan, and Jitesh Sharma for the first 2 T20Is.
