  • It’s the Shaw Show Twitter hails Prithvi Shaw’s impressive century on Test debut

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

In the process, Shaw also became the second youngest Indian to score a maiden Test ton after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.

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.

In the last one year, Shaw has been sensational and has forced his way into the Indian Test team by performing exceptionally well in the domestic circuit and for India A. The Mumbai batsman has a first class average of 56.72 at a strike rate of 76.69. And the West Indies attack was depleted. After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too made a decision to join the run-fest.

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.


Meanwhile, Pujara poked at a wide ball and fell for 86 off 130 balls, giving fast bowler Sherman Lewis his first test wicket.

Shaw, who was 75 not out at lunch, reached the three figures in the afternoon session with a typical punch to the cover, the same way he got his first runs in global cricket.

In the final session, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane added 105 runs for the fourth wicket. Unfortunately, Shaw fell at the stroke of tea, in what was a soft dismissal as he chipped one straight into the hands of leggie Devendra Bishoo. At the other end, local boy Pujara, who looked far from his best in England, took some time to settle in before joining Shaw in the run-fest.

HUNDRED! Virat Kohli slams his 24th Test ton as India continue to dominate.

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.
