In the India vs West Indies first test, teenage sensation Prithvi Shaw announced his arrival in top-flight cricket by becoming the youngest Indian to score a Test century on debut and take the Indian cricket team to 364 for four against West Indies at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot.
India won the U-19 World Cup under his captaincy and he played some impressive knocks in the Indian Premier League for Delhi Daredevils, thus, earning him a call-up to the India A side.
18-year-old Prithvi Shaw made best use of the flat track to score a century on Test debut.
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.
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.
Meanwhile, Pujara poked at a wide ball and fell for 86 off 130 balls, giving fast bowler Sherman Lewis his first test wicket.
In the morning, Shaw, who became the 293rd cricketer to represent India in Tests, showed supreme confidence from ball one, on which he offered a watchful leave.
"Playing for India, it was a big thing for me". I used to play 30-35 school games in a year, and played a lot of (first-class) Ranji (Trophy) cricket as well.
However, West Indies have improved in the recent times.
Shaw, a diminutive right-hander, reached his 50 in a quickfire 56 deliveries.
Kraigg Brathwaite, standing in as captain after Jason Holder suffered a last-minute ankle injury, juggled his bowlers but the absence of the experienced Kemar Roach and Holder was painfully evident. I wanted to make this opportunity count.
Talking about Shaw, the opener brought up his century in the 32nd over and became the youngest Indian, and fourth youngest overall to score a hundred on his debut. Even after losing the wicket of KL Rahul in the very first over, India is a wonderful situation right now, thanks to Prithvi Shaw and Cheteswara Pujara. The wicket was good and I should have kept batting. Just when it looked like Windies would crawl back to the game, Kohli and Rahane joined hands to share a 105-run stand.
First day's play of the first Test will start from 9:30 am IST and 5 am BST.
