I am not sure how to score these answers. I will have a look at the points and clean things up at the end, I think.

Jethro Mawudzi for Mountaineers in 2009 is another one.

Mawudzi is correct.
These are from the Logan Cup. There are 3 left on my list.
The first two have finished their careers. Their careers were short & they each played the same number of FIRST Class games. One of these two previously represented Zimbabwe under 19s & had a marvelous strike rate.
The third was born in another country & has subsequently played in that country. But his FC debut was his LC debut (unlike Byrom) with a century. He potentially could play again but has been not selected anywhere for a few years.

Well, this must have been some knock:
Glen Barrett burst on the cricket scene in Zimbabwe when, just short of his 23rd birthday, he not only scored a century on his first-class debut, but did so off only 54 deliveries, hit 13 sixes in the match, and came within 20 runs of making it two centuries in the match. The feat was achieved for the CFX Academy against Manicaland at Mutare Sports Club, and few cricketers anywhere have made such an impact on debut.
So, Glen Barrett is another of those debut centurions.

Wow well done rusty. I have been struggling with this one off and on and was about to demand more clues!

Score update -

foreignfield : 9
CrimsonAvenger : 8
cricket_22001 : 6.5
rusty17: 3.5
Jemisi : 2
MidWest Rhinos, eugene : 1

Q32 What major milestone did BRMT pass in his hundred yesterday?
We didn't get there on Q32. Taylor passed 20,000 career runs in that knock. The current question will be Q33 and I think .25 for each correct guess at one of the centurions. How does that sound?
