18-year-old Prithvi Shaw started his career with a dream innings. He smashed 134 in just 154 deliveries before playing one straight into the hands of bolwer Devendra Bishoo in 51st over of the first day in India vs West Indies opening Test.

The pitch in Rajkot was filled with runs and Shaw didn’t miss out on making most of it. His 99-ball hundred is the third fastest (in terms of balls) on debut.

Why Virat Kohli is the perfect Captain that the current Indian Team needs

While Shaw was giving a hard time to Windies bowlers on the field, Durex took this opportunity to make Twitterati laugh.

Shaw’s debut Test hundred was used wisely by the Durex team and they come up with a hilarious post. “It’s always special.. when it’s the first time!”, the caption in the picture read. In the tweet, it was, “The Shaw must go on. #INDvWI.”

India dominated the first day of the Test match. They scored 364 runs with the loss of four wickets. The scorecard may not give the exact picture of the play, but it did show West Indies bowlers were not in the game.

Three out of four wickets West Indies picked on day 1 were soft dismissals. Except for KL Rahul’s LBW dismissal, no batsmen actually looked troubled.
