Mumbai:
Mumbais 17-year-old cricket prodigy Prithvi Shaw arrived in some style and with some fortune.

Leading Mumbais chase of 256 in the Ranji Trophy semi-final against Tamil Nadu, Shaw was on 99 on debut when he was caught at gully off TN medium pacer V Shankar.

As he walked away, the umpires decided to check for a no ball. And it turned out to be one. The youngster was back and two balls later he had got his century.

He is the second youngest after Sachin Tendulkar to hit a century on debut in first class cricket.

Is this the arrival of the next big star?
