The Fastest 5 Centuries by Debut Players in Test Cricket

The list of fastest centurions on Test debut features some relatively recent performances. Former Delhi Capitals’ opening pair feature in the top-5 list – Shikhar Dhawan & Prithvi Shaw. Dhawan’s incredible hundred against Australia in 2013 tops the chart. He also tops the list of the Indian batsmen with the highest score in the debut Test match.

Abdul Hasan’s debut century was scored while batting at No.10 which is just the second one at that position after Reggie Duff in 1902.
