It has been a sensational season for Hanuma Vihari in his cricketing career. The flamboyant batsman made most of the opportunity he got in England and Australia to seal a regular spot in the playing XI. During the course, he got a fan in the name of Sachin Tendulkar, who is impressed with Vihari’s temperament and calmness.

Since his hundred in West Indies, Hanuma Vihari is now seriously making waves among the ranks of Team India. At 25, the middle-order batsman is hitting his prime at the right time and looks like he could go on to make it big if he continues in the same way for the Indian team in longer version of the game.

I have been impressed by Hanuma Vihari calmness – Sachin Tendulkar

India legend Sachin Tendulkar has been mighty impressed with middle-order batsman Hanuma Vihari. Heaping praise on the 25-year-old batsman, Tendulkar said that he is impressed by Vihari’s shot selection, calmness and temperament.

“You need to play Test cricket differently and real skill is tested on good bowler-friendly tracks and he has gone out and shown an ideal temperament,” he said according to a Hindustan Times report.

“Vihari has been smart in selecting right shots to play at the right time. I have been impressed by his calmness, temperament as well as the ability to absorb pressure. In Test cricket, various aspects are going to be tested and if you are sure of those things, your body language is different, which I saw in him,” he added.

Apart from Sachin Tendulkar, recently, Virat Kohli complimented Vihari for his temperament, which the skipper feels infuses a sense of calm in the dressing room. He called Vihari the find of the West Indies tour.
