Best Figures in LA cricket by any Zimbabwean now belong to a Chinaman!

7-19 :o
Apparently Magarira is just SLA. Wrong classification by Cricinfo as Chinaman, which they haven't corrected for long...
That is much less exciting. :(

Following Ngoni Mupamba's century on debut, it made me research LC records for similar instances. I found 6 other instances although I don't guarantee this list is complete. Of these instance, I guarantee Mupamba's is the highest. Only one of these 6 is an international, albeit very briefly.
I could be wrong but this topic may have you scratching your head for ages.
So, does anyone want to guess or do I just spill the beans?

You are referring to Logan Cup debut hundreds right? Not necessarily FC debut hundreds...

Yes, to clarify, this list is maiden first class hundreds on debut in Logan Cup. But. coincidentally, they all were making their FC debut also.

Are you sure about that? One of the guys I thought who qualified as LC debut 100 was Eddie Byrom, but he had made his FC debut for Somerset before that... Byrom might not qualify if you are looking for the very first innings itself. He got it in the second innings of his first LC match.

And by the way, the only international in the list you are looking for must be Friday Kasteni.

Firstly, Kasteni is the international on this list.
Secondly, I was wrong. Byrom would have been on this list. But he is the exception to the others having played other FC matches as noted. Good thing I had my weasel clause about not guaranteeing the list as being complete. And a note to self: check the most recent year completed when checking archives.
So, to clarify. Four of the remaining five were born in Zimbabwe(Rhodesia). Their FC debut was their LC debut(so post 1993/94). On this debut they scored a maiden FC century. (a debut is a debut regardless of the innings).
One of the five was not born in Zimbabwe/Rhodesia. But his FC & LC debut are the same match & he hit a century. No! Not Mohammad Eklakh.
No Waller hit a century on debut Fc or list A.
Phew. I'm digging a bigger hole for myself.
