India's debutant batsman Prithvi Shaw has become the youngest Indian player to score 100 on Test debut after he scored a tremendous 134-run on the first day of the Test match against Windies.

Cheteshwar Pujara had earlier missed out on a hundred when he stroked 86 while Ajinkya Rahane chipped in with 41, as India recovered from the loss of opener KL Rahul in the first over without scoring, to collar the visitors' bowling attack.

After India opted to bat first, Prithvi opened the innings with Lokesh Rahul.

The right-handed Shaw struck 19 fours off 154 deliveries while Pujara, also right-handed, faced 130 balls and counted 14 fours in chalking up his 19th half-century in his 63rd Test.
