Teenager Shaw becomes India’s youngest debut century-maker

Teenager Shaw becomes India’s youngest debut century-maker

After scoring centuries in his first Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy matches, Prithvi Shaw smashed a hundred in his debut match in worldwide cricket on Thursday, 4 October.

Shaw is also the second youngest Indian ever to score a Test century after Sachin Tendulkar who cracked a ton at 17 years and 107 days in 1990 vs England in Manchester.

"Playing for India, it was a big thing for me".

Grenada fast bowler Sherman Lewis, also making his worldwide debut, had Pujara caught behind for his maiden Test wicket before Shaw was caught and bowled by Devendra Bishoo.

Kohli batted through to the close to finish unbeaten on 72, with Rishabh Pant 17 not out.

Shaw announced himself as a teenager when he scored 546 runs in a high school Harris Shield elite match in 2013, and also a century on his first-class debut in 2017.

Shaw, a diminutive right-hander, reached the landmark with two runs off paceman Keemo Paul and punched his fist in the air as he was given a standing ovation by the home crowd.

The GST on these products has always been described as unfair because products such as condoms and Viagra are exempt. But the federal government needs the support of all states and territories in order to make the changes.

Tendulkar said it "lovely to see such an attacking knock" and told Shaw to "continue batting fearlessly".

"I have played a lot of cricket in Ranji and it just keeps going on with so much cricket around".

India head coach Ravi Shastri said it was a "free and fearless performance on debut" and that there was "a bit of Viru and the Master there" referring to former opener Virender Sehwag and Tendulkar.

Shaw's innings was studded with 19 fours while Pujara hit 14 boundaries before poking at a length ball half-heartedly to wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich off pacer Sherman Lewis, who bagged his first Test scalp. "All that experience has helped me", added the Mumbai-born Shaw.

Besides Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara also scored a good looking 86 in his own backyard but missed out on a hundred.

Kohli, who is the world's number one Test batsman, got to his half-century against Bishoo and was getting more unsafe with each passing ball.

India captain Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane then shared a century stand until the latter was caught behind off Roston Chase for 41.
