Maiden Test ton for Mawoyo
Bulawayo - Opener Tino Mawoyo hit an unbeaten maiden test century to guide Zimbabwe to 314 for 5 against Pakistan at lunch on the second day of the one-off Test at Queens Sports Club.
Playing in only his second Test, Mawoyo resumed from his overnight score of 82 after batting through the first day, nervously reaching his ton on a day in which he played the spinner Saeed Ajmal better and showed good footwork.
He was unbeaten on 117 having faced 362 balls. His fifth-wicket partnership of 94 with Craig Ervine gave Zimbabwe the foundation to put up a competitive first-innings score in good batting conditions.
Ervine was out a single run away from his maiden test half-century, being caught and bowled by Junaid Khan off a rising delivery.
