tendulkar-bumrah

India trounced West Indies by 257 runs in the second Test on Tuesday. With this comprehensive victory, the visitors won the two-match series by thrashing the Windies in both the matches.

Team India pacer Jasprit Bumrah played a massive role in the Caribbean clean sweep, picking up a total of 13 wickets in the two Test matches.

Former India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar showered heaps of praise on the young bowler for his clinical performance.

He wrote: “Congratulations to Team India on a fabulous series win. It’s been a joy to watch @Jaspritbumrah93 in this series. His hat-trick was special and the progress he has made in Test cricket has been absolutely terrific. #WIvsIND.”

Bumrah was lethal in the second Test match. His six-wicket haul in the first innings included a hat-trick.

He conceded only 27 runs and as a result, recorded his career-best bowling figures of 6-27.

The 25-year-old has moved up to the 3rd spot in the ICC Test Rankings for Bowlers.

Tendulkar also lauded Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane for their match-winning knocks during the series. Both the batsmen notched up centuries, Rahane in the first match and Vihari in the second Test.

“Lovely batting by @Hanumavihari to get to his 1st 100. Also very good to see @ajinkyarahane88 get back in form. The maturity & patience they have shown is a good sign for the Indian Test team. #WIvsIND,” the Master Blaster tweeted.
