Later Shaw was out at his score of 134.

In the last one year, Shaw has been sensational and has forced his way into the Indian Test team by performing exceptionally well in the domestic circuit and for India A. The Mumbai batsman has a first class average of 56.72 at a strike rate of 76.69.

Along the way, Shaw had also become the youngest Indian to score a half-century on Test debut.

Virender Sehwag, who is well known for his cheeky posts on Twitter, showered praises on the youngster and wrote:"It's been the Shaw show".

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. He is still young and with time will mature as a batsman and as a cricketer so it is important that India give him enough opportunities. Overall, he's the seventh youngest batsman in test cricket to achieve this feat. India regular test openers Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay were dropped after poor form during the recent tour of England.

With the selectors looking ahead, it's up to the likes of Shaw, Agarwal and KL Rahul to seal their spots at the top of the Indian batting order ahead of the much-anticipated tour to Australia. He scored 546 runs in a school game in 2013, and captained India to the Under-19 World Cup title in January in New Zealand.

"I was thinking about my father (after reaching the hundred)", he said. "It was a good challenge for me and I think I did well", he added. "I needed to be more careful as there were only 10 minutes left before tea".

He built a solid partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara. That completes his 24 Test century.

Indian vice-captain Rahane though lost his cool against off-spinner Roston Chase to get caught behind in the final few overs of the day.

Kohli, who is the world's number one Test batsman, got to his half-century against Bishoo and was getting more unsafe with each passing ball.
