The 24-year-old achieved the landmark in 115 balls with a strike rate of 86.96.

Though the match was a low scoring affair, Rahul single-handedly scored 100 of the required 169 runs and achieved both the feats with a 6 when he hit Hamilton Masakadza over long-on.



 

With that maximum he helped India thrash Zimbabwe by 9 wickets and take them 1-0 up in the 3 ODI series.

Before Rahul, Robin Uthappa was India’s highest debut scorer. He had scored 86 runs during his first ODI match against England back in 2006.
