Prithvi Shaw

RAJKOT: Indian cricket has a new star after Prithvi Shaw became the country's youngest batsman to score a century on debut during Thursday's Test against the West Indies.

Kohli, who started on his overnight score of 72, got to his hundred in his 123rd innings with a boundary off leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo.

Shaw and Pujara, who came one down, however, maintained their calm and punished the bad deliveries to complete half-centuries.

With hundreds on debut in Ranji trophy, Duleep trophy and Irani Trophy, all eyes were on Prithvi after it was announced he is set to make his debut in the first Test match. Ajinkya Rahane contributed 41 runs.

With the achievement, Shaw became the fourth youngest player to score a hundred on debut and the youngest ever Indian.

Shaw, at 18 years and 329 days, reached the historic three-figure mark off just 99 balls at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. The Mumbai lad reached the milestone in just 56 balls. The right-hander reviewed in desperation but replays showed the ball hitting middle stump.

Shaw and Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket as the tourists were sent on a leatherhunt for large parts of the second session.

But at 337 in 84 overs, Roston Chase dismissed Rahane.

Cheteshwar Pujara too looked at ease at the other end and was on 74 off 100 balls when the Shaw's century came.
