Maiden Test ton for Mawoyo

2011-09-02 12:31

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.

    You go, kid ! The cricketing world is amazed at the competitiveness, professionalism and unmistakable talent of the Zim side, despite what your dictator has put your country through. Well done, young man - may there be many more !

      StormBergBok, Thanks for the compliment to our talented stars. One correction though BOB made it possible for the black guys to play cricket when he was involved in the selection of the current leaders who made it mandatory for black cricketers to be included in the team . As you are aware this caused the rebellion from white guys and we withdrew from Test to mould a new team and what a success it is!! So Big up to BOB!!
