Records tumble as Prithvi Shaw scores hundred on Test debut in Rajkot

The Indian skipper also surpassed Australia's Steve Smith to go second in the list of centurions among active players, behind South Africa's Hashim Amla on 28.

However, Prithvi Shaw stitched a 206-run stand alongside Cheteshwar Pujara before Pujara fell for 86.

Shaw has now scored a century each on his Ranji Trophy debut - 120 vs Tamil Nadu at Rajkot, Duleep Trophy debut - 154 vs India Blue in Lucknow and Test debut.

More importantly, Shaw had the confidence of several hundreds under his belt when he walked out to bat for India Thursday morning.

Shaw steered the team to 180/1 just after the lunch break.

Pujara also played an uncharacteristically quick knock as he brought up fifty off 67 deliveries, but missed out on his hundred after being caught behind off debutant paceman Sherman Lewis. The right-hander reviewed in desperation but replays showed the ball hitting middle stump.

Prithvi Shaw is no stranger to success and high league pressure.

However, there was some early celebration for the Windies when Gabriel struck Rahul in front with the sixth ball of the match with just three runs on the board. Rahul was better off not taking the DRS as the ball was clearly crashing into the stumps. "Continue batting fearlessly", Tendulkar said on Twitter.

The teenage prodigy collected two fours off Bishoo in the 11th over and did the same to Chase in the 20th over.

The West Indians looked listless on the field as boundaries came at will for India.

Their lead pacer, Kemar Roach, was already ruled out of the series opener due to a bereavement in the family.

Rishabh Pant (17) and skipper Virat Kohli (72) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day.
