Rahul was gone for a golden duck when Caribbean pacer Shannon Gabriel trapped the Indian opener in front of the wickets.

Shaw gathered his runs on both sides of the wicket, taking 12 from Paul's second over of the morning courtesy of three boundaries before driving the same bowler for fours through the off and leg side to move into the 40s.
