Prithvi Shaw becomes Indias youngest debut century-maker

This comes at a time when other state units are haggling for complimentary passes for the following ODI series

India´s Ravindra Jadeja celebrates after reaching his century (100 runs) during the second day´s play of the first Test cricket match between India and West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium in Rajkot on October 5, 2018.

Virat Kohli continued his brilliant run of form as he scored a brilliant century for India on Day 2 of the first Test against West Indies in Rajkot on Friday.

Ravindra Jadeja smashed his maiden worldwide century as India posted their highest total against the West Indies after declaring on 649-9 in the first Test in Rajkot on Friday. 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.

Shaw is also the second youngest Indian ever to score a Test century after Sachin Tendulkar who cracked a ton at 17 years and 107 days in 1990 vs England in Manchester.

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. Earlier in the same year, Shaw had also scored a hundred on his Ranji Trophy debut. During his knock, Kohli also amassed 3000 Test runs in India (53 innings).

Brief scores: India 364/4 (Prithvi Shaw 134, Cheteshwar Pujara 86, Shannon Gabriel 1/66) against West Indies on Day 1.

And Shaw finally departed in the final over before the break when he tamely chipped a return catch to Bishoo. The right-hander reviewed in desperation but replays showed the ball hitting middle stump. "Continue batting fearlessly", Tendulkar said on Twitter.

Shaw just needed 99 balls to get the landmark as he toyed with the weakened West Indies bowling, which missed captain Jason Holder and pacer Kemar Roach.
