Shaw got to the three-figure mark in the second session of the first day's play at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Prithvi Shaw is no stranger to success and high league pressure.

Kohli was all smiles when young Shaw raised his bat after reaching the milestone. The youngster was aggressive right from the word go and made sure he latched on to the bad deliveries, which often came his way.

Prithvi Shaw made debut in the global cricket with the first test match against and as it was expected like his career, he again made a century in his debut match.

The U19 World Cup-winning Indian captain hit 15 boundaries and was severe against both the pacers and the spinners from the West Indies camp.

On Day 1, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane built on Prithvi Shaw's brilliant performance with a century stand and he continued to play sensibly on Friday.

IBTimes, India has compiled a list of records broken by Shaw in his maiden Test innings. Tendulkar scored a century on debut in Ranji, Duleep and Vijay Hazare trophy tournaments.

Shaw, who is 18 years and 329 days old, reached his hundred off just 99 deliveries in the second session on day one.

Virat Kohli also surpassed Virender Sehwag (714 in 2009-10) to score the most number runs in five consecutive Test innings in India.

He reached his 20th half-century in Tests off 100 balls and all told, has so far counted four fours in a 137-ball innings. This was also Kohli's 17th Test ton as captain, which is the third most Test century by a skipper behind Graeme Smith (25) and Ricky Ponting (19).

Overall, Shaw is the 106th player to score a century on Test debut and is the first since Ireland's Kevin O'Brien against Pakistan earlier this year.
