Australian media hails Melbourne: The Australian media today were effusive in their praise for the magnificent unbeaten 185 by India`s debutant Shikhar Dhawan.

The Daily Telegraph wrote,"On a remarkable day of action, Cyclone Dhawan hit world cricket with full force after clubbing the fastest century by a debutant in Test cricket`s 136-year history."

The paper also wrote,"Australia`s grip on the Border-Gavaskar trophy is effectively gone after Indian debutant Shikhar Dhawan went berserk to make history and leave the tourists on the canvas in the third Test."

The Australian wrote,"Scientists seem certain the Hadron collider has discovered the God Particle, Indian cricket seems to have found its own in debut centurion Shikhar Dhawan. This 27-year-old high energy particle accelerator has blasted his way into the game with the fastest Test 100 on debut."

The popular Sydney Morning Herald termed the innings "awe-inspiring."

"The 27-year-old`s 85-ball century in his first Test was an awe-inspiring and gag-inducing treat. Dhawan-ism, the biggest thing since cyclone Tracy, you get the picture.

"The wordplay, however, did not do justice to the sheer quality and the audaciousness of this innings. Dhawan barely lofted a ball in the air but struck a remarkable 21 fours to all corners en route to three figures. With 84 per cent of his runs to that point, he was not required to move."
