Looks like young Prithvi Shaw is gelling really well with his teammates. The 18-year-old was seen playing a game of Table Tennis with Cheteshwar Pujara before the first Test.

Pujara posted the video on his Twitter account saying they will take this partnership to a much bigger field the next day. "@PrithviShaw and I getting our TT game on point. See you on a much bigger field tomorrow! #INDvWI," he wrote.

Prithvi is playing his debut Test for India against West Indies. He and Pujara have taken their off-field partnership to the field as well. 

After winning the toss, skipper Virat Kohli decided to bat first, and in 35 overs of the game on the first day of the opening Test, India's scorecard read 182/1.

Pujara and Shaw put up a partnership of 179 runs after KL Rahul got out on a duck. The debutant completed a century on his debut and scored 102* runs, while Pujara also scored 74* runs with a good pace. He took just 101 balls.

The Saurashtra batsman has often been criticized for being too slow with the bat. But the home ground didn't let that discussion pop-up again.
