Prithvi Shaw scores maiden Test century on debut

"I just spoke to him, he just had some jokes and just tried to speak Marathi, which is really amusing", Shaw added. But on the other hand, I was like 'I'll play my game.

"I was thinking of my dad, because he has sacrificed a lot of things for me", said Shaw.

2 - Players to score 50-plus at a younger age than Shaw in Tests in India. I didn't want to lose this opportunity. He wasn't sparing any bowler who offered even the slightest of width while respecting some really good deliveries.

Despite losing his partner KL Rahul in the first over of the innings, Shaw didn't perturb and smashed the ball to all the parts of the ground.

Skipper Virat Kohli (72 not out off 137) and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane (41 off 92) then took the innings forward with a 105-run stand in the final session, putting India in the driver's seat before the latter was caught behind off spinner Roston Chase.

But you need more than that to do well in global Tests.

The yield curve steepened, with the spread between two- and 10-year yields last at 34 basis points, up from 31.5 late Thursday. The Nikkei .n225 added 0.4 percent on bets the falling yen would boost sales and profits at Japan's many exporters.

"It was captain and coach's decision (of when to give me a game)".

He drove paceman Keemo Paul on the up through covers to reach triple figures off 99 balls, becoming the fourth youngest to score a hundred on debut. Shikhar Dhawan's 85-ball ton against Australia in Mohali in 2012-13 is the fastest century on debut.

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

It was on my mind that it's my first time in Test cricket so how am I supposed to bat. "The bowlers are very experienced in global cricket and there are a variety of bowlers which makes it challenging", Shaw, who captained India's World Cup-winning U-19 team earlier this year, stated. Roach is back in Barbados to attend the funeral of his grandmother.

- "Manchester is very attractive", Shaw told the BBC Asian Network earlier this year as he reflected on his time in Lancashire. Eighty nine overs were bowled on day one with India scoring at 4.08 runs per over. Only Sachin Tendulkar and Parthiv Patel were younger than Shaw when they got their maiden Test half-centuries, but not on debut. However, those few days with the Indian team was a learning process for the youngster as he got to know the stars and be friends with them.
