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.
Even better, he's now become the second youngest Indian to score a Test century after Sachin Tendulkar, who smashed his first ton at the age of 17 against England in 1990.
A day he'll remember for a long time:
A moment to cherish, cricketers and fans united on Twitter to applaud the young man for his incredible achievement.
This boy is class and a lambi race ka ghoda- Prithvi Shaw. So good to watch #IndvWI— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) October 4, 2018
Congratulations to Prithvi Shaw for a hundred on debut. Love the fact that he can score at a strike rate of 100 just batting instinctively without looking to over attack or by taking risks. 👏👏👏🙏#PrithviShaw— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) October 4, 2018
There were jokes too!
He came, he Shaw, he conquered 💯👏👏#PrithviShaw— Gaurav Kapur (@gauravkapur) October 4, 2018
