Prithvi Shaw made debut in the global cricket with the first test match against and as it was expected like his career, he again made a century in his debut match.

Shaw is the fourth-youngest worldwide batsman to score a century on debut.

Mayank Agarwal, Hanuma Vihari and Mohammad Siraj were left out, hence Prithvi Shaw is set to make his Test debut opening the innings with KL Rahul. 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. In fact, during the only Test which was played at this ground, a lot of runs were scored by both England and India.

India won the toss and elected to bat first.

However, West Indies have improved in the recent times.

Kraigg Brathwaite, standing in as captain after Jason Holder suffered a last-minute ankle injury, juggled his bowlers but the absence of the experienced Kemar Roach and Holder was painfully evident.

He reached his half-century off 56 deliveries and was unbeaten on 75 off 74 deliveries at lunch as India reached 133 for one, with Pujara on 56.

India opener Lokesh Rahul was out in the first over for a duck, but Shaw and Pujara cruised, putting on 206 runs together.

However, Rishab Pant was dismissed for 92 by Devendra Bishoo.

Cheteshwar Pujara too looked at ease at the other end and was on 74 off 100 balls when the Shaw's century came. Prithvi also got the opportunity to bat with his skipper Virat Kohli in his very first match.

India cashed in on the weakened attack by scoring quickly and already, the Windies face a long road back into the match, heading into Friday's day two.

Kohli reached 24 Test tons in 123 innings, second fastest to the milestone after Australian great Don Bradman who clinched the same in just 66 innings.

In the morning, Shaw, who became the 293rd cricketer to represent India in Tests, showed supreme confidence from ball one, on which he offered a watchful leave.
