India vs Windies, 1st Test, Day 2, Rajkot

Adjust Comment Print

Kohli, batting on 120, put together 133 runs for the fifth wicket with overnight partner Rishabh Pant, who made a quickfire 92 on day two in Rajkot.

Shaw and Pujara, who came one down, however, maintained their calm and punished the bad deliveries to complete half-centuries. 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.

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.

Mayank Agarwal is also in the squad for the Indian team, and could perhaps get a chance to play in the second Test. Agarwal and Shaw have been prolific with the bat for India A, and the former was all praises for young Prithvi.

Tendulkar was 17 years and 107 days old while Shaw is 18 years and 329 days old when he got to his century. His innings was laced with 15 boundaries. However, Shaw remained unfazed and kept playing his natural game in the company of Cheteshwar Pujara.

Shaw, however, continued batting with confidence and his first boundary came in the second over bowled by Keemo Paul, another back foot punch towards the point boundary.

And Shaw finally departed in the final over before the break when he tamely chipped a return catch to Bishoo. The right-hander reviewed in desperation but replays showed the ball hitting middle stump.

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