A video Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, who slammed the fastest century by a debutant for India on Saturday against Australia.

"I have been working hard since being dropped from the Indian team I have changed myself, I was waiting for a chance.

I am happy that I grabbed it with both hands. I am feeling good, I thank God, it has always been a dream to score runs on debut," Dhawan said.

"You couldn't feel it, but I was really nervous as I approached my fifty and century," Dhawan told reporters after the end of the third day's play, with India sitting pretty at 283 for no loss in reply to Australias 408.
