Prithvi becomes youngest Indian to score 100 on Test debut

India had elected to bat in the first of the two Tests.

Teenager Prithvi Shaw became the youngest Indian to score a century on debut in the first Test against West Indies in Rajkot on Thursday.

Kohli was not alone in reaching triple figures against the Windies; debutant opener Prithvi Shaw also achieved the feat on day one of the match. Prithvi also got the opportunity to bat with his skipper Virat Kohli in his very first match. However, Shaw remained unfazed and kept playing his natural game in the company of Cheteshwar Pujara.

Shaw is also the seventh youngest to score a Test century after Ashraful, Mushtaq Mohammad (17 years and 78 days), Masakadza, Tendulkar, Imran Nazir (18 years and 154 days) and Malik.

The West Indies handed a big setback even before toss with the last-minute withdrawal of captain Jason Holder, looked ordinary at best on the field.

Another day that was completed dominated by India as they went on to score almost 650 runs with Virat Kohli and then Ravindra Jadeja score centuries, the former has this habit of doing it regularly, while it was the first occasion for the latter to score a Test century and no better place to do it than at the home ground. The right-hander reviewed in desperation but replays showed the ball hitting middle stump.

Shaw, however, continued batting with confidence and his first boundary came in the second over bowled by Keemo Paul, another back foot punch towards the point boundary.

Indian batsmen Virat Kohli and Rishab Pant return to the pavilion after the end of the test cricket match played between India and West Indies, in Rajkot.

Shaw reached his hundred off just 99 deliveries in the second session on day one.
