Teenager Prithvi Shaw roars at Rajkot with Test century on debut

India vs West Indies,Prithvi Shaw,Prithvi Shaw debut

Prithvi Shaw made debut in the worldwide cricket with the first test match against and as it was expected like his career, he again made a century in his debut match. Prithvi also got the opportunity to bat with his skipper Virat Kohli in his very first match.

At the Day 1, Prithvi Shaw hit maiden century.

After India opted to bat first, Prithvi opened the innings with Lokesh Rahul.

Cheteshwar Pujara too looked at ease at the other end and was on 74 off 100 balls when the Shaw's century came.

On 232 for three at tea, India subdued the Windies in the final session thanks to a 105-run, fourth-wicket stand between the enterprising Kohli and Rahane.

At 18 years and 329 days, Shaw reached the milestone off just 99 balls, adding to a host of records he holds in his blossoming career.

Shaw has now scored a century each on his Ranji Trophy debut - 120 vs Tamil Nadu at Rajkot, Duleep Trophy debut - 154 vs India Blue in Lucknow and Test debut.

In the process, Shaw also became the second youngest Indian to score a maiden Test ton after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.

Shaw's hundred is a massive one for India in two respects - one, it breaks the kind of monopoly that the Vijay-Dhawan pair enjoyed and two, it shows that India can benefit from moving on from tried and tested options.

Rishabh Pant (17) and skipper Virat Kohli (72) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day.

Shaw just needed 99 balls to get the landmark as he toyed with the weakened West Indies bowling, which missed captain Jason Holder and pacer Kemar Roach.

The Mumbaikar punched the second ball he faced towards the cover boundary for a three, his first runs in worldwide cricket, easing whatever nerves left inside.
