Mawoyo scores maiden Test ton

Friday, 2 September 2011

Bulawayo, Zimbabwe – Opener Tino Mawoyo hit an unbeaten maiden Test century to guide Zimbabwe to 314/5 against Pakistan at lunch on the second day of the one-off Test at Queens Sports Club.
Playing in 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 on 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.
