Sachin Tendulkar heaps praise on Indian bowling sensation Jasprit 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.

After sealing the series with a win, India are now sitting pretty at the top of the World Test Championship table with 120 points.
