India vs West Indies | Prithvi Shaw scores century in Test debut

Prithvi Shaw

Shaw, just 18, made his worldwide debut on in the ongoing first Test between India and the Windies.

The last session saw India maintain a good run rate with Kohli and Rahane (41) stitching a 105-run partnership and helping India get past the 300-run mark. The World Cup-winning U19 captain was handed his maiden Test cap by the skipper Virat Kohli on Thursday morning, after which he opened the batting for India along with KL Rahul. However, Shaw remained unfazed and kept playing his natural game in the company of Cheteshwar Pujara. However, the debutant Prithvi Shaw took matters into his own hands as he smashed a scintillating century.

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 announced himself as a teenager when he scored 546 runs in a high school Harris Shield elite match in 2013, and also a century on his first-class debut in 2017. With the tour of Australia just a month away, the team looks determined to get into the match simulation, but then, with Rajkot simmering at 39 degrees, it needs to be seen how the wicket would eventually behave over the next five days.

Cubs' NL wild-card game roster has Strop, not Edwards
With the Red Sox, Lester allowed three runs in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series in a loss to the Rays in 2008. The Cubs defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2015 to spark a run to the NLCS, which ended at the hands of the New York Mets.

Rahul was gone for a golden duck when Caribbean pacer Shannon Gabriel trapped the Indian opener in front of the wickets. He also produced a delightful straight drive on way to reaching his half-century which came off 56 balls.

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.
