India's debutant batsman Prithvi Shaw has become the youngest Indian player to score 100 on Test debut after he scored a tremendous 134-run on the first day of the Test match against Windies. Kohli looked set for another hundred and was batting alongside Rishabh Pant (17 not out off 21) at close of play as India scored at the rate of 4.08 runs per over in 89 overs. In the third session, Kohli and Rahane stitched a 105-run stand to take the team past 300. He is second youngest Indian after Sachin Tendulkar to make a Test century.

He put on a 206 run partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara for the second wicket. He became the second youngest to score a century for India in Tests after Tendulkar. He had earlier made waves by reaching three figures in his first Ranji Trophy appearance and was the youngest to hit a century on Duleep Trophy debut. He soon got to his half-century and went to lunch just 20 odd away from a dream start to his Test and global career.

Rahul was gone for a golden duck when Caribbean pacer Shannon Gabriel trapped the Indian opener in front of the wickets.

And Shaw finally departed in the final over before the break when he tamely chipped a return catch to Bishoo.

Shaw, a diminutive right-hander, reached his 50 in a quickfire 56 deliveries.

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

Thus, when India dropped Dhawan and Vijay for the home series against West Indies, it was indeed a huge change.
