  • This comes at a time when other state units are haggling for complimentary passes for the following ODI series

Skipper Virat Kohli, on four, and Ajinkya Rahane were at the crease. He became the 15th Indian player to do so and only the second player while playing at the opening.

Pujara, who is inching closer to 5,000 Test runs, ensured India a solid start with Shaw, smashed 14 boundaries.

After India opted to bat first, Prithvi opened the innings with Lokesh Rahul.

Another day that was completed dominated by India as they went on to score almost 650 runs with Virat Kohli and then Ravindra Jadeja score centuries, the former has this habit of doing it regularly, while it was the first occasion for the latter to score a Test century and no better place to do it than at the home ground.

More importantly, Shaw had the confidence of several hundreds under his belt when he walked out to bat for India Thursday morning.

Shaw, who was 75 not out at lunch, reached the three figures in the afternoon session with a typical punch to the cover, the same way he got his first runs in worldwide cricket. Subsequently, Shaw offered an easy return catch to leggie Devendra Bishoo trying to play against the turn.

Smith, who is serving a one-year ball tampering ban, has 23 tons in 64 Tests.

Nonetheless, Shaw showcased why is rated so highly by the cricket community. After Rahul's dismissal, Shaw and Pujara gave the innings a move on and did not look in any sort of trouble.

The teenage prodigy collected two fours off Bishoo in the 11th over and did the same to Chase in the 20th over.

Shaw just needed 99 balls to get the landmark as he toyed with the weakened West Indies bowling, which missed captain Jason Holder and pacer Kemar Roach.

Skipper Virat Kohli on 72 and R.R.Pant with 17 remained unbeaten when the stumps were drawn.
