You have to download any one of them either Notification History or Notif Log notification history; because both apps are same just layout is different. So at first let me explain to you how these two app works. These apps keep the record of all the notification (which appeared in your notification bar) in it.

When you open either the two application you will be asked to grant them permission. After that, all you need to do is go to the log (of either of the apps) and check out the notifications (message) that were deleted on WhatsApp.
