India's teen batting prodigy Prithvi Shaw plunders West Indies on test debut

India's KL Rahul celebrates his century India's KL Rahul celebrates his century

Prithvi Shaw first grabbed the attention of the world as a 14-year-old when he 546 off 330 balls for Rizvi-Springfield against D'Assisi High School in the Harris Shield tournament of 2013-14.

With this feat, he also became the youngest Indian to score a century on debut for India in Tests.

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". He scored a century off 99 balls to become the third fastest cricketer to score a debut hundred.

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

If Kohli gets 49 more, he'll become the first Indian batsman to score more than 1000 runs in three consecutive calendar years. And the West Indies attack was depleted. Overall, he's the seventh youngest batsman in test cricket to achieve this feat.

India will take on India in the opening Test match at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Oct 4.


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. Delhi Daredevils signed him for US$187,500 for the Indian Premier League. "He has sacrificed a lot for me". I wanted to make this opportunity count. "I needed to be more careful as there were only 10 minutes left before tea".

Cheteshwar Pujara had earlier missed out on a hundred when he stroked 86 while Ajinkya Rahane chipped in with 41, as India recovered from the loss of opener KL Rahul in the first over without scoring, to collar the visitors' bowling attack.

Kohli reached his 20th test half-century off 100 balls.

Rahane, meanwhile, had faced 92 balls and struck five fours and looked a safe bet for a half-century before edging a cut at part-time off-spinner Roston Chase to be caught at the wicket, with the close in sight.

Often a tad flashy with his shot selection, Shaw was fluent on both sides of the wicket and hit 19 boundaries in his maiden test knock.
