Prithvi Shaw did live up to the hype on his much-anticipated India debut, notching up a well-deserved three-figure score. Opting to bat, India lost KL Rahul for a blob in the first over of the day but the youngster settled the nerves with a 206-run second wicket stand with Cheteshwar Pujara. Shaw brought up his maiden Test ton shortly after lunch hitting Keemo Paul to the backward point boundary. He was dismissed at the stroke of tea by Devendra Bishoo, for a well made 134.

The records Shaw broke on Day 1 of his Test career

4 Shaw became the fourth youngest specialist batsman at the time of his Test debut for India. The players younger than him include Sachin Tendulkar (16y 205d) in 1989, Vijay Mehra (17y 265d) in 1955 and AG Milkha Singh (18y 13d) in 1960.

2 players younger than Shaw at the time of making maiden Test fifty for India – Tendulkar being the youngest at 16 years & 214 days old when he made 59 against Pakistan in Faisalabad in 1989 in his second Test. The other player to do so was Parthiv Patel who was 18 years & 301 days old when he hit 62 against Australia at the SCG in 2004.

15 Shaw became the 15th player to score a hundred on Test debut for India. 134 scored by him is the fourth highest by a debutant for India after 187 by Shikhar Dhawan, 177 by Murali Vijay and 137 by Gundappa Vishwanath.
