Fans erupt over teenage prodigy's historic Test century

Prithvi Shaw

KL Rahul was disappointing, Rahane fell after getting a start, Kohli is unbeaten on 72 but the day belonged to Shaw. To top that, the man who replaced Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, emulated the belligerent southpaw with a flashy, jaw-dropping hundred on debut at Rajkot on Thursday. In total, 15 Indian players have scored centuries on Test debut.

Shaw, at 18 years and 329 days, reached the historic three-figure mark off just 99 balls at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Shaw and Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket as the tourists were sent on a leatherhunt for large parts of the second session.

And Shaw finally departed in the final over before the break when he tamely chipped a return catch to Bishoo. He also produced a delightful straight drive on way to reaching his half-century which came off 56 balls.

Shaw's innings was studded with 19 fours while Pujara hit 14 boundaries before poking at a length ball half-heartedly to be taken by wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich off pacer Sherman Lewis, who bagged his first Test scalp. However, Shaw remained unfazed and kept playing his natural game in the company of Cheteshwar Pujara.

Virat Kohli also surpassed Virender Sehwag (714 in 2009-10) to score the most number runs in five consecutive Test innings in India.

The Mumbaikar punched the second ball he faced towards the cover boundary for a three, his first runs in worldwide cricket, easing whatever nerves left inside.
