Prithvi Shaw Applauded By Cricket Fraternity For His Record Knock On Test Debut

Soon after the teenager got to his century, the cricket fraternity took to Twitter and hailed his debut performance.

“Lovely to see such an attacking knock in your first innings, @prithvishaw! Continue batting fearlessly. #INDvWI,” batting great Sachin Tendulkar tweeted.

“Shaw what a show @PrithviShaw,” Indian opener Rohit Sharma tweeted.

Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif termed him a classy player.

Prithvi Shaw, courtesy of his century, also became the second-youngest Indian batsman to score a Test century after Tendulkar.

The right-handed opener also became the seventh youngest Test centurion at the age of 18 years and 329 days. The youngest was Mohammad Ashraful for Bangladesh. He had achieved this feat at the age of 17 years and 65 days.
