Test Century on Debut for India

Every young boy in India dreams of playing cricket for the country, but only a few lucky and talented ones get to do it. Among these chosen stars, some shine brighter than others and accomplish the remarkable feat of scoring a century on their Test debut.

The most recent addition to this list is Yashasvi Jaiswal. The 21-year-old opening batsman from Maharashtra became only the 17th Indian cricketer in history to score a century on his Test Debut. Jaiswal put up a 200-run stand with skipper Rohit Sharma against West Indies in the first Test match en route to his century. At the end of Day 2, Jaiswal is currently batting on 143*(350) alongside Virat Kohli 36*(96).

Yashasvi Jaiswal, through this performance, has justified the faith of selectors. Although his selection in the Indian team and this performance isn’t a surprise as he had a brilliant season in domestic cricket where he scored 1,845 runs in 26 innings, including 9 centuries. However, he caught attention during the Indian T20 League 2023, scoring 625 runs at a blistering strike rate of 163.
