India's debutant batsman Prithvi Shaw has become the youngest Indian player to score 100 on Test debut after he scored a tremendous 134-run on the first day of the Test match against Windies. After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too made a decision to join the run-fest.

The middle order will be comprised of Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, and Ajinkya Rahane.

Shaw is also the second youngest Indian ever to score a Test century after Sachin Tendulkar who cracked a ton at 17 years and 107 days in 1990 vs England in Manchester.

Holder also said that leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo could prove to be key on turning Indian tracks.

India won the toss and elected to bat first.

Shaw is the fourth-youngest global batsman to score a century on debut.

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

One can not speak of the future but this 134 off 154 balls, he has done all the right things to book a flight to Australia for the Test series, that starts on December 6 at Adelaide.

Scholes slams Mourinho as Man U held by Valencia in ECL
Confidence is low at Old Trafford with United having made their worst start to a league season for 29 years. Scholes was working as a pundit for United's Champions League clash at home to Valencia tonight.

This will be Windies' first Test in India for the first time since 2013, when Sachin Tendulkar had bid farewell from global cricket. At the other end, local boy Pujara, who looked far from his best in England, took some time to settle in before joining Shaw in the run-fest.

Shaw is the seventh youngest global batsman to score his first Test century.

Shaw also confessed that he was initially a bit nervous on meeting the senior team players, but Team India coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Kohli comforted him by saying there is nothing like senior or junior here.

However, West Indies have improved in the recent times.

He reached his half-century off 56 deliveries and was unbeaten on 75 off 74 deliveries at lunch as India reached 133 for one, with Pujara on 56. If the visitors harbor any hopes of coming close to India.

Their lead pacer, Kemar Roach, was already ruled out of the series opener due to a bereavement in the family.

The two-match West Indies series starting in Rajkot on Thursday gives India the chance to work on problem areas ahead of the all-important tour of Australia starting in November.
