In total, 15 Indian players have scored centuries on Test debut.

Virender Sehwag, who is well known for his cheeky posts on Twitter, showered praises on the youngster and wrote:"It's been the Shaw show".

With hundreds on debut in Ranji trophy, Duleep trophy and Irani Trophy, all eyes were on Prithvi after it was announced he is set to make his debut in the first Test match. He is the 293rd cricketer to represent India in Test cricket and at the age of 18 years 329 days Shaw became India's second youngest opener after Vijay Mehra, who was 17 years 265 days at Bombay's Brabourne Stadium against the Kiwis in Dec 1955. Overall, he's the seventh youngest batsman in test cricket to achieve this feat.

Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay, two of India's most successful opening batsmen in the longest format in recent times, have been dropped following some ordinary performances in their 4-1 defeat in England.

Dodgers top Rockies for 6th straight NL West title
The Colorado Rockies' Charlie Blackmon completed a cycle by hitting an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday. The Dodgers won their fifth consecutive game against the Rockies going back to September 9 and won the season series 13-7.

Shaw earned a reputation as a batting prodigy.

"I was thinking about my father (after reaching the hundred)", he said. This first century is all for him. "It was a good challenge for me and I think I did well", he added.

He was out trying to drive legspinner Devendra Bishoo but only chipping straight back to the bowler. The marathon partnership was finally broken in the 43rd over when Lewis got rid of Pujara for 86, his innings studded with 14 fours.

On 232 for three at tea, India subdued the Windies in the final session thanks to a 105-run, fourth-wicket stand between the enterprising Kohli and Rahane.

Kohli reached his 20th test half-century off 100 balls. His knock came in 154 balls with 19 boundaries.

Kohli, who is the world's number one Test batsman, got to his half-century against Bishoo and was getting more unsafe with each passing ball.

Rahane, too, lacked the ease with which Shaw batted earlier in the day, and fell on 41 to Roston Chase in the last hour.
