Prithvi becomes youngest Indian to score 100 on Test debut

Overall, Shaw is the 106th player to score a century on Test debut and is the first since Ireland's Kevin O'Brien against Pakistan earlier this year.

Besides Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara also scored a good looking 86 in his own backyard but missed out on a hundred.

At stumps Kohli was unbeaten on 72 with wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant not out on 17 and India already in the driving seat in the match.

This will be Windies' first Test in India for the first time since 2013, when Sachin Tendulkar had bid farewell from global cricket.

Aiming to maintain their top spot in ICC Test rankings, India will take on West Indies in 1st Test played at Rajkot.

At the Day 1, Prithvi Shaw hit maiden century.

Prithvi Shaw scored at better than a run a ball before lunch on his test debut in Rajkot.




Shaw earned a reputation as a batting prodigy.

Skipper Virat Kohli, who was all smiles when young Shaw raised his bat after reaching the milestone, was at the crease on 4 with vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane (batting 0) with Shaw offering an easy return catch to leggie Devendra Bishoo trying to play against the turn.

Left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan managed just 162 runs in eight innings in seaming English conditions and was then dropped ahead of the West Indies series. I wanted to make this chance count.

Shaw, who was 75 not out at lunch, reached the three figures in the afternoon session with a typical punch to the cover, the same way he got his first runs in global cricket.

Pujara, playing on his home ground, was typically solid at the other end, waiting patiently for loose deliveries to pick up boundaries.

More than half of his runs came through boundaries, 19 in total.

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.
