Teenager Prithvi Shaw roars at Rajkot with Test century on debut

05 October 2018

Rajkot: India's Virat Kohli bats during the first day of the first cricket test match between India and West Indies in Rajkot, India, Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018.

Nonetheless, batsmen have always enjoyed the Rajkot conditions and thus both teams would be looking to bat first after winning the toss.

The 18-year-old Shaw, who was chosen ahead of uncapped Mayank Agarwal and one-Test-old Hanuma Vihari from the 15-man squad, is expected to open alongside Lokesh Rahul. Skipper Virat Kohli, on 72, and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, on 17, were batting at close of play. However, when it comes to playing in India it will be a different ball game altogether. After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too chose to join the run-fest. Debutant Prithvi Shaw touched various records on his way to a stroke-filled 154-ball 134 and helped India rubber-stamp their dominance over the visiting side at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. I used to play 30-35 school games in a year, and played a lot of (first-class) Ranji (Trophy) cricket as well. West Indies looked pale and exhausted on most occasions. With this feat, he also became the youngest Indian to score a century on debut for India in Tests. 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.

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. Overall, he faced 137 balls and hit only four boundaries, not the most fluent knock by the world's No 1-ranked test batsman. However, Kohli and Pant batted out the remaining overs and ensured there were no further setbacks before the curtains were drawn on Day 1.
