Prithvi becomes youngest Indian to score 100 on Test debut

India vs West Indies,Prithvi Shaw,Prithvi Shaw debut

Rajkot: Prithvi Shaw became the youngest Indian to score a Test century on debut as India rode on the Mumbai teenager's fluent 134 to post 232/3 at Tea against the West Indies in the first Test here on Thursday. India scored 142 in the first session as the Windies bowlers looked out of ideas, lacked bite and creativity.

Virat Kohli has broken Sachin Tendulkar's record to become the fastest Indian player to register 24 Test centuries.

Despite Kohli scoring nearly 600 runs - and two centuries - India suffered a 4-1 defeat to England in the summer.

Shaw, at 18 years and 329 days, reached the historic three-figure mark off just 99 balls at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Kohli put on 133 with Pant, who smashed eight fours and four sixes in his 84-ball knock against an inexperienced attack, only to fall eight runs short of a second Test ton when he edged a Bishoo googly to Keemo Paul.

Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja ravaged a clueless West Indian attack with strokeful hundreds as India headed towards a demolishing win with another near-perfect performance on day two of the first cricket Test here.

It has been a good last 30 days for the southpaw, who scored a gritty 86 in the final Test in England before making an ODI comeback with the Asia Cup in Dubai.

Kohli was all smiles when young Shaw raised his bat after reaching the milestone.

Any hopes West Indies had of finding further immediate breakthroughs were then dashed as Shaw and Pujara combined in a 206-run second wicket stand to consolidate the innings.

Shaw wasted little time in picking up where he had left off in the first session, twice drilling leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo to the leg side boundary in the first over after the interval.
