  • India's KL Rahul celebrates his century

He made 134 off 154 deliveries with the help of 19 boundaries before being caught and bowled by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo in the last over before tea. In total, 15 Indian players have scored centuries on Test debut.

India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 2 Live Cricket Streaming: Prithvi Shaw scored his maiden Test hundred.

Virender Sehwag, who is well known for his cheeky posts on Twitter, showered praises on the youngster and wrote:"It's been the Shaw show". He also produced a delightful straight drive on way to reaching his half-century which came off 56 balls.

It meant a Test debut for the inexperienced 22-year-old Sherman Lewis and also saw Keemo Paul, at age 20 and with a single Test to his name, having to share the new ball with speedster Shannon Gabriel.

However, Prithvi Shaw stitched a 206-run stand alongside Cheteshwar Pujara before Pujara fell for 86. Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan was dropped and the Indian side will play with three debutants Hanuma Vihari, Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agrawal.

After India opted to bat first, Prithvi opened the innings with Lokesh Rahul. And the West Indies attack was depleted.




Shaw earned a reputation as a batting prodigy. I wanted to make this opportunity count.

Their lead pacer, Kemar Roach, was already ruled out of the series opener due to a bereavement in the family. "It was a good challenge for me and I think I did well", he added.

Pujara, playing on his home ground, was typically solid at the other end, waiting patiently for loose deliveries to pick up boundaries.

In the final session, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane added 105 runs for the fourth wicket.

Rahane, meanwhile, had faced 92 balls and struck five fours and looked a safe bet for a half-century before edging a cut at part-time off-spinner Roston Chase to be caught at the wicket, with the close in sight.
