Share

Prithvi Shaw made debut in the worldwide cricket with the first test match against and as it was expected like his career, he again made a century in his debut match. Prithvi also got the opportunity to bat with his skipper Virat Kohli in his very first match.

Shaw hit 11 fours in his 74-ball knock and put on an unbeaten 130-run second wicket partnership with Pujara, who was left playing second fiddle to his much younger and more aggressive partner.

Besides Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara also scored a good looking 86 in his own backyard but missed out on a hundred.

At 18 years and 329 days, Shaw reached the milestone off just 99 balls, adding to a host of records he holds in his blossoming career.

Shaw became India's second-youngest century maker after Sachin Tendulkar as he reached three figures early in the second session.
