Shaw scored just eight before he was cleaned up by <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/navdeep-saini">Navdeep Saini</a>. However, the day ended on a high after Mumbai <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/aditya-tare-stars-as-mumbai-lift-third-vijay-hazare-title-757398">clinched the title</a> after 12 years. <p></p> <p></p>What also brought a smile to the young Shaw, who scored a <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/prithvi-shaw-becomes-youngest-indian-to-hit-century-on-test-debut-752151">century on his Test debut</a> against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/west-indies/">West Indies</a> in Rajkot, was the presence of former India batsman <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/gundappa-viswanath/">Gundappa Viswanath</a> at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. <p></p> <p></p>Shaw, who had earlier registered a ton in his first-class debut as well, achieved the same feat as Viswanath (in 1969), to become only the third player to score centuries on first-class debut as well as Test debut. Australia's <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/dirk-wellham/">Dirk Wellham</a> was the other players who reached this dual achievement in 1980-81. <p></p> <p></p> When I learnt Prithvi was playing in Bengaluru, I decided to meet him, Viswanath was quoted as saying in a report in <em>Times of India</em> on Monday. <p></p> <p></p> I congratulated the youngster on his fantastic debut and for joining the club. I told him he was only the second Indian to join the club after 49 years. I wished him luck and told him that this is just the beginning. I hope he goes on to score many more centuries. <p></p> <p></p>Shaw too was glad he met Viswanath. It was a dream come true to meet GR Viswanath sir, who is a legend of the game, he said.
