India made a thumping start to the ICC World Test Championship whitewashing West Indies 2-0 in the two-match Test series. This series has given team India plenty of positives which will make them stronger in the coming days. Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar heaped praise on Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane, who have been rock solid in the middle-order.

Virat Kohli & Co have produced clinical effort in both the Tests and dominated their opponents. The real find of the series was Hanuma Vihari. Coming to bat at six, the Andhra batsman has provided solidity in the middle-order. He finished with 289 runs in the series as the highest run-scorer.
Hanuma Vihari has shown the grit and determination to be successful in the Test arena. He has batted with authority to bring his maiden Test century. He finished the tour with two fifties and a hundred. On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane has also reinvented himself as a batsman in this tour.
The team India vice-captain has raised his hand when his side needed the most. Rahane has batted for long hours shouldering the pressure and have put runs on the board. Batting great Sachin Tendulkar seemed mighty impressed with these two stars.
Tendulkar said that maturity and patience shown by Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane is a good sign for Indian cricket in the future.
“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,” Sachin Tendulkar tweeted.
