All eyes were on the 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw when he came out to bat against the West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. And he delivered.

Shaw, who opened the innings for India on Thursday, had the best debut any batsman could've asked for. The young batsman played fine shots all around the park and reached the milestone in style. By doing so, he's now become the youngest Indian to score a ton on their debut.

A day he'll remember for a long time:

Shaw accumulated 134 runs in just 154 deliveries with a strike rate of 87.01.
