  • India vs West Indies 1st Test Preview Team India Seeks Course Correction At Home

India: Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Mohamed Shami. He is the 293rd cricketer to represent India in Test cricket and at the age of 18 years 329 days Shaw became India's second youngest opener after Vijay Mehra, who was 17 years 265 days at Bombay's Brabourne Stadium against the Kiwis in Dec 1955.

Shaw wasted little time in picking up where he had left off in the first session, twice drilling leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo to the leg side boundary in the first over after the interval.

India had elected to bat in the first of the two Tests.

Shaw reached the landmark with two runs off paceman Keemo Paul, punching his fist in the air as the home crowd gave him a standing ovation. "Continue batting fearlessly", Tendulkar said on Twitter.

Prithvi Shaw scored at better than a run a ball before lunch on his test debut in Rajkot. His innings was laced with 15 boundaries, which is also the third fastest Test hundred behind Shikhar Dhawan (85 balls) and Dwayne Smith (93). I used to play 30-35 school games in a year, and played a lot of (first-class) Ranji (Trophy) cricket as well. Hence, the pitch is not going trouble the players as much as the weather will.

Talking about Shaw, the opener brought up his century in the 32nd over and became the youngest Indian, and fourth youngest overall to score a hundred on his debut.

Bangladesh batsman Mohammad Ashraful is the youngest debut Test centurion, followed by Zimbabwe's Hamilton Masakadza and Pakistan's Salim Malik.

Kraigg Brathwaite, who is standing as captain after Jason Holder suffered a last-minute ankle injury, juggled his bowlers who often looked toothless.

Meanwhile, India are in a commanding position with 239 runs on the board, losing only 3 wickets.

HUNDRED! Virat Kohli slams his 24th Test ton as India continue to dominate.

Rahane, too, lacked the ease with which Shaw batted earlier in the day, and fell on 41 to Roston Chase in the last hour.
