Teenager Prithvi Shaw roars at Rajkot with Test century on debut

AFP  GETTYOUT

Prithvi Shaw made history on Thursday by becoming the youngest Indian to score a Test century on debut.

In the West Indies' reply, Kraigg Brathwaite (two) and Kieran Powell (one) fell to Mohammed Shami in the first five overs before India's spinners took over.

Jadeja hit exactly 100 not out while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant missed out on three figures with 92, as West Indies bowlers toiled without much success on a chastening day.

Another netizen tweeted, "The run out was wonderful india at a best".

West Indies ended the day at 94/6 from 29 overs, with Shane Dowrich being the last man to fall.

Pant played his usual attacking game from ball one, flicking the ball through square leg to get going.

A defence official told AFP the packages were addressed to Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and Navy head Admiral John Richardson. Secret Service said it had received a "suspicious envelope" addressed to President Trump the day before.

The top order did not withstand the Indian bowling attack, as Shami accounted for both openers and then a horrendous mix-up saw Shimron Hetmyer run-out just when he looked to be settling. Roston Chase and Keemo Paul, on the other hand, will be looking to lend a degree of respectability to the scorecard by scoring runs early on.

Ravendra Jadeja joined Kohli and they posted a 64-run partnership before Shermon Lewis returned for the scalp of Kohli. He was unbeaten on 27 with four fours to his name and had Paul for company who smashed a four and a six in his 13.

Ravindra Jadeja smashed his maiden global century as India posted their highest total against the West Indies after declaring on 649-9 in the first Test in Rajkot on Friday.

Shaw, the second-youngest Indian player to have made a Test century behind Sachin Tendulkar, produced the mainstay of the hosts' innings, which closed at 364-4.

Jadeja steadily built towards his fifty before accelerating with India eight down, hitting five fours and five sixes as he dominated the strike to reach his ton off 132 balls.
