India vs West Indies 1st test Day 1: Prithvi Shaw lived up to the expectations as he slammed a 99-ball 100 on his debut. He was in control of his innings throughout. It was Devendra Bishoo who brought an end to Shaw’s innings for 134. It was a conventional leg-break that might have stopped on the surface, but Shaw still had to counter it properly, instead, he lobbed it back with feet stuck in the crease back to Bishoo. A very soft dismissal! Once he realised he had made a mistake he stood his ground and looked at the surface once he was out, as if to suggest the ball behaved not how he had expected it to.
Earlier, Prithvi Shaw became the second youngest Indian to score a century on Test debut. He brought up the three-figure score in merely 99 balls against West Indies in the first Test at Rajkot. Shaw was fluent in his stroke-making and did not take unnecessary risks en route to the milestone. India won the toss and opted to bat first on a placid Rajkot wicket as Shaw became the 293rd player to represent India in Tests. His innings comprised of 19 boundaries. Pujara also shared a 206-run stand with Pujara.
