India's 50 was completed in the 11th over

India's 50 was completed in the 11th over

At lunch, he was batting alongside Cheteshwar Pujara, in a strong recovery after India lost an early wicket of KL Rahul in Rajkot.

Shaw became only the 15th Indian cricketer ever and the first since Rohit Sharma in 2013 to have scored a century on Test debut and also the second youngest Indian overall after Sachin Tendulkar to have scored a Test century.

Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant will start the proceedings for India, its a great opportunity for both of them to register Test tons as West Indies bowling attack has looked clueless against these Indian batsmen.

Opting to bat first at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, India marched to 364 for four at the close, with the 18-year-old Shaw belting a superb 134 and captain Virat Kohli ominously poised on an unbeaten 72. His knock came in 154 balls with 19 boundaries. However, Pujara couldn't reach to his hundred as he departed for 86 runs.

Other Indian luminaries lined up to tweet his praise including former Test batsman VVS Laxman, who said Shaw had a "bright future" in the game.

Indonesian TV showed dramatic smartphone video of a powerful wave hitting Palu , with people screaming and running in fear. Dwi Haris, who was in the city for a wedding, was staying in a hotel with his wife and daughter when the quake struck.

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

"I have played a lot of cricket in Ranji and it just keeps going on with so much cricket around". Holder injured his ankle during the preparatory camp in Dubai, and in his absence, opener Kraigg Brathwaite was handed over the captaincy for the second time in Tests. After Rahul's dismissal, Shaw and Pujara gave the innings a move on and did not look in any sort of trouble.

Roach is back in Barbados to attend the funeral of his grandmother. Ajinkya Rahane contributed 41 runs. With this feat, he also became the youngest Indian to score a century on debut for India in Tests.

India raced to 232-3 at tea, managing another 132 runs in the evening session's 38 overs with Kohli and Rahane batting cautiously.

Kohli reached 24 Test tons in 123 innings, second fastest to the milestone after Australian great Don Bradman who clinched the same in just 66 innings.
