Top 5 / Top 10

It is always a big moment for any player to receive his Test cap and perform for his side. While Some fail at leaving a mark while there are few exceptions that blow away everyone with their confidence and temperament.

Here is the list of the top five fastest centurions on Test debut.

#1. Shikhar Dhawan (100 in 85 balls vs Australia)

England v India: Specsavers 3rd Test - Day Two
Shikhar Dhawan scored 100 in just 85 balls on debut

Even if his Test career is in disarray, there is one thing Shikhar Dhawan can be proud of. As he walked to the ground in his debut Test match against Australia in the absence of Sehwag, he looked determined to make the most out of this opportunity.

He batted brilliantly throughout the innings playing his natural flamboyant shots around the park. His natural aggressive batting was at the display as he brought up his maiden Test century in just 85 deliveries. The record remains still unbroken after 5 years since his debut. He went on to score 185 runs in that innings beating the previous record of Gundappa Vishwanath of 137 on debut.

Even after five years since his debut, the record remains unbeaten
