India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 2 Live Cricket Streaming: Prithvi Shaw scored his maiden Test hundred. Only Sachin Tendulkar and Parthiv Patel were younger than Shaw when they got their maiden Test half-centuries, but not on debut.

With the achievement, Shaw became the fourth youngest player to score a hundred on debut and the youngest ever Indian.

If India is banking on the "tinge of green", West Indies also has the likes of Shannon Gabriel and Jason Holder, who could certainly prove effective on a tad bouncy surface. Barring Gabriel, the other bowlers failed to hit the right line and length to Shaw and that allowed the young batsman to play to his strength. After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too made a decision to join the run-fest.

He made 134 off 154 deliveries with the help of 19 boundaries before being caught and bowled by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo in the last over before tea.

He delivered the masterclass batting style in the first match against Windies. Gabriel trapped his opening partner Rahul in front with a sharp incoming delivery to give the West Indies an early breakthrough.

With the selectors looking ahead, it's up to the likes of Shaw, Agarwal and KL Rahul to seal their spots at the top of the Indian batting order ahead of the much-anticipated tour to Australia.

He built a solid partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara. In the third session, Kohli and Rahane stitched a 105-run stand to take the team past 300. He also produced a delightful straight drive on way to reaching his half-century which came off 56 balls. That completes his 24 Test century. Overall, he faced 137 balls and hit only four boundaries, not the most fluent knock by the world's No 1-ranked test batsman.

Indian vice-captain Rahane though lost his cool against off-spinner Roston Chase to get caught behind in the final few overs of the day.
