Former cricketers salutes Prithvi Shaw after he scores a hundred on debut

Young Prithvi Shaw continued to impress one and all as he became the youngest ever Indian batsman to hit a century on debut in the first test against West Indies at Rajkot. In the process, Shaw also became the first batsman to notch up a ton in International test debut, Ranji trophy debut and Duleep trophy debut.

Earlier in the match, India lost KL Rahul at the score of just 3 runs before Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara took over and piled up a 206 run stand in just 42 overs to take India to drivers seat. Shaw looked flawless from the first ball and pounched on the loose deliveries by the in-experienced Windies bowling line-up.

He soon reached his maiden test ton in the 33rd over bowled by Keemo Paul to become the second youngest Indian batsman after Sachin Tendulkar to score a century. Shaw(99 balls) also became the third batsman to score fastest century on debut after Shikhar Dhawan(85 balls) and Dwayne Smith(93 balls)

Here is the celebration
