Prithvi becomes youngest Indian to score 100 on Test debut

Shaw, who is 18 years and 329 days old, reached his hundred off just 99 deliveries in the second session on day one.

Besides Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara also scored a good looking 86 in his own backyard but missed out on a hundred.

Skipper Virat Kohli became the quickest batsman to reach 24 Test centuries after the great Donald Bradman early on day two as India dominated the West Indies on Friday.

He got more aggressive in Paul's following over, hitting him for three fours as the pacer was duly punished for bowling far too many looseners.

While Shaw punched and drove effortlessly off pacers, he was equally comfortable against the spin duo of Bishoo and Chase.

Shaw, a diminutive right-hander, reached his 50 in a quickfire 56 deliveries.

Kraigg Brathwaite, who is standing as captain after Jason Holder suffered a last-minute ankle injury, juggled his bowlers who often looked toothless.
