India vs WI 1st Test: Prithvi Shaw hits sparkling hundred on debut

India vs WI 1st Test: Prithvi Shaw hits sparkling hundred on debut

Just when it looked like Windies would crawl back to the game, Kohli and Rahane joined hands to share a 105-run stand. He had earlier made waves by reaching three figures in his first Ranji Trophy appearance and was the youngest to hit a century on Duleep Trophy debut.

Shaw also confessed that he was initially a bit nervous on meeting the senior team players, but Team India coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Kohli comforted him by saying there is nothing like senior or junior here. With this feat, he also became the youngest Indian to score a century on debut for India in Tests.

Prithvi Shaw becomes the second youngest Indian to score a maiden test ton after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.

He was finally caught and bowled by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo for 134 in the last over before the break.

He raced into the 90s with another pulled boundary off the ineffective Bishoo before raising three figures off just 99 balls almost three-quarters of an hour after the interval, punching Paul to cover for a couple.

India's Prithvi Shaw celebrates after scoring fifty runs on the first day of the first cricket test against West Indies.

Prithvi Shaw first grabbed the attention of the world as a 14-year-old when he 546 off 330 balls for Rizvi-Springfield against D'Assisi High School in the Harris Shield tournament of 2013-14. West Indies looked pale and exhausted on most occasions. Rahul was better off not taking the DRS as the ball was clearly crashing into the stumps.

Sherman Lewis will continue bowling.

KL Rahul will be opening the innings.

While Shaw punched and drove effortlessly off pacers, he was equally comfortable against the spin duo of Bishoo and Chase.

That was to be the final opening at goal for the Red Devils, as the encounter ended goalless at Old Trafford. On his defenders' performance, the Portuguese said: "They tried, they raised the level of their intensity".

Shaw reached his half-century off 56 balls, and Pujara scored his 19th test half-century off 67 balls as the duo scored at 5.32 runs per over in the morning session.

Led by Virat Kohli, who returns from the Asia Cup rest, India will be hoping to maintain their dominance at home.

West Indies, already without Kemar Roach after the pace spearhead returned home due to a family bereavement, suffered a further setback when captain Jason Holder was ruled out with an ankle injury.

The last time the two teams faced each other was in 2016 when India toured West Indies for a four-match Test series.
