Prithvi Shaw is the 4th youngest to score a ton on debut and the 7th youngest test centurion ever. 

He became the second Indian among those seven today joining a certain Sachin Tendulkar, who is at No.2. The eight youngest test centurions have the most representatives from Pakistan [4], followed by India [2] and one each from Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. 

Shaw is the 21st male cricketer to score a first test hundred while still in his teens. Age wise, he is 7th on the list which also includes the likes of Javed Miandad, Aravinda DeSilva and Graeme Pollock.
