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 vain. He certainly has the right temperament and when someone like Sachin Tendulkar is praising him, you know he deserves it.

Sachin likes his approach to the game and is certainly looking at him as one for the future.

“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.

Vihari topped the charts with 289 runs in the Test series in West Indies and played a big role as the visitors decimated the hosts.

The talent is there and he is converting it into performance. Of course more such knocks are needed to cement a place in the side but he is certainly doing his chances no harm by delivering consistently. At the time when the Test side is looking for fresh blood, Vihari is the man who has raised his hand and stood up to be counted.
