Tendulkar Picks Kuldeep & Pant as Stars to Watch Out for After Australia Triumph

Sachin Tendulkar has picked out Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant as two of the biggest potential stars for Indian cricket in the future after India’s historic series win in Australia.

Congratulating the team on the achievement, Tendulkar wrote on Twitter, Has been a wonderful series where the younger and senior players shared responsibilities to achieve something special. @Rishabpant777, who has gone from strength to strength and @imkuldeep18 are definitely ones to watch out for. #INDvAUS

Pant had a fantastic series with the bat and also behind the stumps. He was the second highest scorer in the series with 350 runs to his name at an average of 58.33, including a career-best knock of 159. He also became the first Indian wicket-keeper to score a ton in Australia. He also completed 20 catches in the series. He has only played nine Tests but already has two tons and two half-centuries to his name.

Kuldeep played only one Test, but had a great impact as he picked 5/99, second five-for in his career. He became just the second left-arm wrist spinner after England’s Johny Wardle to achieve this feat.
