Former India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar congratulated the Indian Test team for their performance in West Indies. He also reserved special praise for India's middle-order batsmen Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari for playing crucial knocks and helping India whitewash the series 2-0.

Hanuma Vihari, who was picked ahead of in-form Rohit Sharma did not disappoint the team management as he emerged as the leading run-scorer in the series. He made 289 runs at an average of 96.33, including two half-centuries and a century. Also, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane finished second in the list making 271 runs, including two fifties and a century at North Sound, Antigua, which came after two long years.

"Lovely batting by Hanuma Vihari to get to his first 100. Also very good to see Ajinkya Rahane get back in form. The maturity and patience they have shown is a good sign for the Indian Test team," the little master tweeted.

He also congratulated the Team for their performance in the Carribean and had special words for India's new pace sensation Jasprit Bumrah.

"Congratulations to Team India on a fabulous series win."

"It's been a joy to watch Jasprit Bumrah in this series. His hat-trick was special and the progress he has made in Test cricket has been absolutely terrific."

After being rested for the limited overs leg of the series, Jasprit Bumrah, came firing on all cylinders as he picked up 13 wickets from two games at a staggering average of 9.23 including two five-wicket hauls. Also, during the second Test at Jamaica, Jasprit Bumrah registered his career best bowling figures of 6/27 and became the third Indian bowler after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan to pick up a Test hat-trick.
