Prithvi Shaw becomes the youngest Indian cricketer to score hundred in Test debut.
18-year-old Prithvi Shaw scored 134 runs off 154 balls in the opening test of the 2 match test series against West Indies at Rajkot on Day 1.
The youngster reached his ton in just 99 balls to reach to the magical landmark. He also shared a 206 runs partnership for the second wicket with Cheteswar Pujara.
The opener has also become third youngest player overall and first from India to score a century on Test debut.
Shaw who hails from Mumbai has a good reputation in the domestic cricket and has led India to U/19 WC title.
He played for Delhi Daredevils in IPL earlier this year and now he has became the second youngest Indian to score test century after the legend Sachin Tendulkar.

Congratulations to Prithvi Shaw for a hundred on debut. Love the fact that he can score at a strike rate of 100 just batting instinctively without looking to over attack or by taking risks. 👏👏👏🙏#PrithviShaw
