India´s Ravindra Jadeja celebrates after reaching his century (100 runs) during the second day´s play of the first Test cricket match between India and West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium in Rajkot on October 5, 2018.

RAJKOT: Indian cricket has a new star after Prithvi Shaw became the country's youngest batsman to score a century on debut during Thursday's Test against the West Indies.

Along the way, Shaw had also become the youngest Indian to score a half-century on Test debut.

He built a solid partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara.

Shaw is also the seventh youngest to score a Test century after Ashraful, Mushtaq Mohammad (17 years and 78 days), Masakadza, Tendulkar, Imran Nazir (18 years and 154 days) and Malik.

The newspaper quoted Erdogan as telling reporters on the flight home: "I don't know all of the names but it is a substantial list. Erdogan said that the USA has lost "its reliability with its additional implementations on Turkey".

Shaw became India's second-youngest century maker after Sachin Tendulkar as he reached three figures early in the second session. His innings was laced with 15 boundaries. The Mumbai lad reached the milestone in just 56 balls. Subsequently, Shaw offered an easy return catch to leggie Devendra Bishoo trying to play against the turn.

Any hopes West Indies had of finding further immediate breakthroughs were then dashed as Shaw and Pujara combined in a 206-run second wicket stand to consolidate the innings.

The Mumbaikar punched the second ball he faced towards the cover boundary for a three, his first runs in global cricket, easing whatever nerves left inside.

Shaw gathered his runs on both sides of the wicket, taking 12 from Paul's second over of the morning courtesy of three boundaries before driving the same bowler for fours through the off and leg side to move into the 40s. During his knock, Kohli also amassed 3000 Test runs in India (53 innings).

But at 337 in 84 overs, Roston Chase dismissed Rahane.
