HARARE: Craig Ervine´s maiden century upstaged Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson´s record-breaking exploits as Zimbabwe stunned New Zealand by seven wickets in the first one-day international at Harare Sports Club on Sunday.

Taylor and Williamson continued their remarkable run of form as New Zealand racked up 303 for four, only for Ervine´s dashing innings to carry Zimbabwe to victory with six balls to spare.

The 29-year-old left-hander´s previous best in ODIs was 85, but promoted to the No. 3 position by coach Dav Whatmore, he finished unbeaten on 130 from just 108 deliveries as the hosts chased more than 300 for just the second time in an ODI. (AFP)
