Twitter Reactions: Prithvi Shaw become youngest Indian to score a century on debut

Posted On / /

18 year-old Prithvi Shaw became the youngest Indian to hit a century on debut as he slammed a 99-ball hundred on day one of the first Test against the West Indies in Rajkot on Thursday.

Shaw, a diminutive right-hander, reached his 50 in a quick-fire 56 deliveries. At lunch, he was batting alongside Cheteshwar Pujara, in a strong recovery after India lost an early wicket of KL Rahul.

Shaw then marked his international arrival with an array of strokes against what looked like a toothless West Indian bowling attack. He hit 15 fours in his knock and put on an as yet unbeaten second wicket partnership with Pujara, who was left playing second fiddle to his much younger and more aggressive partner.

The last Indian to score a hundred on Test debut before Shaw was Rohit Sharma, who also reached his milestone against the Windies in November 2013.

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions:
