    Follow us on Social Media

    Suresh Raina became the ninth Indian cricketer to score a century in his first Test innings when his completed his hundred on the fourth day of the second Test match between India and Sri Lanka at the SSC in Colombo.

    Raina had come into bat at the number six position for India when the side was struggling at 241/4 in reply to the mammoth total of 642 that the Sri Lankan side had got. At that stage, a follow-on looked a virtual certainty, but along with the maestro Sachin Tendulkar, the pair took the side out of trouble.

    When Raina got to his maiden century, the pair had added 201 runs and were only 200 runs short of the target.

    Before Raina, Virender Sehwag was the last Indian batsman to score a century on Test match debut in the first innings of the Test match, that he had achieved against South Africa. Some of the other Indians who have scored a century on Test match debut innings are:

    Deepak Shodhan, Sourav Ganguly, Mohammad Azharuddin, Praveen Amre, Surinder Amarnath, Hanumant Singh, Kripal Singh.

    He also became the 59th batsman in the world to score a century in the first innings of the debut Test match.
