India had elected to bat in the first of the two Tests. Virat Kohli (72*) and Rishabh Pant (17*) are now at the crease.
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. In the third session, Kohli and Rahane stitched a 105-run stand to take the team past 300.
At just 18 years and 329 days old, Shaw only needed 99 balls to notch his maiden Test century with an impressive knock. Shaw has scored a century on debut in Ranji and Duleep Trophy tournaments. To top that, the man who replaced Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, emulated the belligerent southpaw with a flashy, jaw-dropping hundred on debut at Rajkot on Thursday. Gabriel trapped his opening partner Rahul in front with a sharp incoming delivery to give the West Indies an early breakthrough. Unfortunately, Shaw fell at the stroke of tea, in what was a soft dismissal as he chipped one straight into the hands of leggie Devendra Bishoo. The Mumbai lad reached the milestone in just 56 balls. Rahane played 92 balls and slammed five boundaries.
Federal Bureau of Investigation set to release Kavanaugh report
Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who are seen as swing votes on the Kavanaugh nomination, also rebuked Trump. If Kavanaugh clears Friday's procedural hurdle, that would set up a final confirmation vote as early as Saturday.
India lost a wicket in the very first over but then Pujara and Shaw scored 206 for the second wicket. However, Pujara couldn't reach to his hundred as he departed for 86 runs.
When India announced a 15-member squad for the two Tests, it was clear that the management was looking at this series as a preparatory pad for the upcoming Australia tour.
