India vs West Indies, 1st Test

Indian cricketers during a training session ahead of the first Test against West Indies

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.

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.

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

Virender Sehwag, who is well known for his cheeky posts on Twitter, showered praises on the youngster and wrote:"It's been the Shaw show".

Shaw steered the team to 180/1 just after the lunch break.

According to Cricbuzz, coach Stuart Law has shown vast faith in the two young pacers: Keemo Paul and Sherman Lewis. Skipper Virat Kohli (72 not out off 137) and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane (41 off 92) then took the innings forward with a 105-run stand in the final session, putting India in the driver's seat before the latter was caught behind off spinner Roston Chase.

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

Along the way, Shaw had also become the youngest Indian to score a half-century on Test debut.

With the knock of his 24th hundred, Kohli, who is on 103*, has surpassed former Australian Captain Steve Smith's tally of 6,199 Test runs.

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. And the West Indies attack was depleted. Kohli ends the over with a single, sending the ball towards point.

The teenage prodigy collected two fours off Bishoo in the 11th over and did the same to Chase in the 20th over.

Shaw, a diminutive right-hander, reached his 50 in a quickfire 56 deliveries. Their troubles had mounted even before the start of the game as Holder pulled out with an ankle injury, giving Kraigg Brathwaite a chance to lead the team.

Chesteshwar Pujara added 86 and captain Virat Kohli was 71 not out, as India notched its highest test total in a day's play against the West Indies.
