Prithvi Shaw becomes Indias youngest debut century-maker

Teenager Shaw's debut ton puts West Indies on backfoot

In the process, Shaw also became the second youngest Indian to score a maiden Test ton after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. He scored a century off 99 balls to become the third fastest cricketer to score a debut hundred. However, Pujara couldn't reach to his hundred as he departed for 86 runs. Skipper Virat Kohli, on 72, and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, on 17, were batting at close of play.

Shaw led India's fightback after they lost opener Lokesh Rahul for nought in the very first over off Shannon Gabriel.

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the second day's play between India and Windies in the first Test in Rajkot.

Kraigg Brathwaite, who is standing as captain after Jason Holder suffered a last-minute ankle injury, juggled his bowlers who often looked toothless.

Shaw is the seventh youngest worldwide batsman to score his first Test century.

But the day belonged to Shaw, a diminutive right-handed opener and Indian Premier League star for the Delhi Daredevils, as he and Cheteshwar Pujara put on a 206-run second wicket partnership. Although, he was out for 134 runs in the end before the Tea break.

The Mumbaikar punched the second ball he faced towards the cover boundary for a three, his first runs in global cricket, easing whatever nerves left inside.

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. He is still young and with time will mature as a batsman and as a cricketer so it is important that India give him enough opportunities.

Shaw, however, continued batting with confidence and his first boundary came in the second over bowled by Keemo Paul, another back foot punch towards the point boundary.

Rahane, too, lacked the ease with which Shaw batted earlier in the day, and fell on 41 to Roston Chase in the last hour.
