Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw inspects the wicket during a practice session before the first test match against West Indies in Rajkot

Prithvi Shaw was assured of Test debut on eve of first test against West Indies

Even after losing the wicket of KL Rahul in the very first over, India is a wonderful situation right now, thanks to Prithvi Shaw and Cheteswara Pujara.

The diminutive right-hander becomes India's second youngest century-maker after Sachin Tendulkar, who in 1990 was 17 years and 112 days when he made 119 not out against in England in Manchester during his ninth Test appearance.

He was finally caught and bowled by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo for 134 in the last over before the break. India lead the table with 115 points.

Sources in New Delhi told The Indian Express these will cover areas such as nuclear, space, economic issues, among others. Developing close relations with India, a member of BRICS, remains one of Moscow's top foreign-policy priorities.

More than half of his runs came through boundaries, 19 in total. However, Pujara couldn't reach to his hundred as he departed for 86 runs. His approach and batting style was praised all over Twitter for being bold and fearless. His innings was laced with 15 boundaries, which is also the third fastest Test hundred behind Shikhar Dhawan (85 balls) and Dwayne Smith (93).

Shaw, who is being touted as the next big thing in Indian cricket, has even been named in the 12-man squad that India had announced on the eve of the first Test and is likely to make his debut on Thursday.

"From the smaller age I used to play a lot of school cricket, 30 or 35 school games in a year", said Shaw, who had once scored a record 546 runs in school cricket. Hence, the pitch is not going trouble the players as much as the weather will. "All that experience has helped me", added the Mumbai-born Shaw.

Bangladesh batsman Mohammad Ashraful is the youngest debut Test centurion, followed by Zimbabwe's Hamilton Masakadza and Pakistan's Salim Malik.

Pujara also played an uncharacteristically quick knock as he brought up fifty off 67 deliveries, but missed out on his hundred after being caught behind off debutant paceman Sherman Lewis.

While their pacers, including captain Holder, Kemar Roach, and Shanon Gabriel, have impressed their batting has stood up with the likes of Kraig Brathwaite, Roston Chase, and Shane Dowrich scoring heavily at home. Roach will be absent as he has flown back to attend a family issue and the lack of top-quality spinners is a cause for concern. Skipper Virat Kohli, on four, and Ajinkya Rahane were at the crease.
