West Indies suffered at the hands of teenager Prithvi Shaw who struck the third fastest hundred on debut as India dominated the opening day of the first Test today.

India had elected to bat in the first of the two Tests.

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the second day's play between India and Windies in the first Test in Rajkot.

India captain Virat Kohli and Windies' stand in skipper Kraigg Braithwaite. In total, 15 Indian players have scored centuries on Test debut. Shaw got to his century with local boy Cheteshwar Pujara at the other end, much to the delight of the Indian dressing room who gave the youngster a standing ovation.

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.

At 18 years and 329 days, Shaw reached the milestone off just 99 balls, adding to a host of records he holds in his blossoming career. Shaw has scored a century on debut in Ranji and Duleep Trophy tournaments.

The Yankees scored six runs in the fourth inning against Cuevas to take an 8-0 lead and cruised to an 11-6 victory at Fenway Park. Yes, Judge and Stanton contributed significantly to the total, but they did not lead a lopsided charge to the record.

Rahul was gone for a golden duck when Caribbean pacer Shannon Gabriel trapped the Indian opener in front of the wickets.

Shaw, a diminutive right-hander, reached his 50 in a quickfire 56 deliveries.

And Shaw finally departed in the final over before the break when he tamely chipped a return catch to Bishoo.

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

India will look to maintain their status in the ICC Test rankings during the two-match Test series against the West Indies.
