Virat Kohli tops active players century list with his 24th Test ton

  • Prithvi Shaw

Prithvi also got the opportunity to bat with his skipper Virat Kohli in his very first match. KL Rahul was disappointing, Rahane fell after getting a start, Kohli is unbeaten on 72 but the day belonged to Shaw.

The diminutive right-hander becomes India's second youngest century-maker after Sachin Tendulkar, who in 1990 was 17 years and 112 days when he made 119 not out against in England in Manchester during his ninth Test appearance. Ajinkya Rahane contributed 41 runs.

Any hopes West Indies had of finding further immediate breakthroughs were then dashed as Shaw and Pujara combined in a 206-run second wicket stand to consolidate the innings.

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 is the seventh youngest worldwide batsman to score his first Test century.


The opposition attack was far from threatening but due credit must be given to Shaw, who batted like a seasoned campaigner in his first match for India.

Overall, Shaw is the 106th player to score a century on Test debut and is the first since Ireland's Kevin O'Brien against Pakistan earlier this year.

Rahul was gone for a golden duck when Caribbean pacer Shannon Gabriel trapped the Indian opener in front of the wickets.
