Coca Cola Test, Day 1 in Bulawayo: Zimbabwe 245 for 4 (Mawoyo 82*, Ajmal 3-75) v Pakistan
Queens Sports Club –The first day of this Test match between Zimbabwe and Pakistan was a steady affair, with Zimbabwe steadying on their way to 244 for four wickets. It was dominated by two players, one on each side, who were a class above their colleagues. Zimbabwe’s opening batsman Tino Mawoyo dug in and held the innings together with an unbeaten 82, batting throughout the day; without him Zimbabwe may have been in considerable trouble. For Pakistan, Saeed Ajmal, the off-spinner with the doosra, baffled all the Zimbabwe batsmen after their pace bowlers failed to make an impact; he took three of the four wickets to fall and could well have had more.
