Prithvi Shaw slams Test century on debut

Privthvi Shaw shot to prominence as a 14 year old when he scored 546 off 330 balls, an innings that contained 85 fours and 5 sixes, for Rizvi Springfield against St Francis D’Assisi in an inter-school match in Mumbai in 2013 for the prestigious Harris Shield, Prithvi Shaw has been consistently compared to the legend Sachin Tendulkar. Shaw’s innings was then the highest score in school cricket.

In September 2017, at 17, Shaw became the youngest player to score a century on Duleep Trophy debut, a record previously held by Sachin Tendulkar.

Prithvi Shaw, a Mumbai batsman became the 15th Indian cricketer to score a century in his debut test match.  He is also the youngest Indian to score a century on debut.  He is the seventh youngest cricketer.  He is 18 years and 329 days old. The previous record for the youngest half-centurion of India on debut was held by Abbas Ali Baig, who at the age of 20 years, 131 days scored a half-century against England in Manchester in 1959.

Prithvi Shaw, opened the innings for Team India against West Indies on Day 1, faced 99 balls to get his maiden 100 at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.  His innings comprised 19 hours.

Shaw’s emphatic innings came to an end on 134 of 154 balls after he was dismissed by Devendra Bishoo.  India Captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat on a pitch with a green tinge.  India got off to a nightmare start, losing K.L.Rahul for a duck in the very first over of the match.  But Prithvi Shaw rescued.

Congratulations to Prithvi Shaw for a hundred on debut. Shaw what a show!!!!!!
