India U-19 skipper Prithvi Shaw led India to big win of 100-run against Australia U-19. Shaw made 94 runs and shared a 180-run stand with his opening partner Manjot Kalra; he scored 86 runs. 

Prithvi, who has been the talk of the town since last few months because of his outstanding domestic season, became the trending topic soon because of his eye-catching shots in India's opening encounter in U-19 World Cup. The famous commentator Ian Bishop compared one of his shot to Sachin Tendulkar's stroke play.

"That is Tendulkar," said Bishop on commentary when Shaw played a glorious drive off the front foot.

The Indian captain faced 100 balls and hit eight boundaries, including two sixes in his knock. His innings helped India to reach a huge total of 328. In reply, India bowled out Australia for 228 to win the first game by 100 runs. 

Australia never looked in the chase as India struck regularly to restrict them.

Here is how Twitter reacted to Prithvi Shaw's innings:
