Zimbabwe clinch ODI series win over Bangladesh

HARARE, Aug 7: Sikandar Raza’s three-wicket haul (3/56) and excellent century (117 not out off 127) helped Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh by five wickets in the second T20I and take an unassailable 2-0 series in the three-match series, here on Sunday.
It was Zimbabwe’s first series victory over Bangladesh since 2013. In the nine-year period in between, they had not won a single ODI against Bangladesh, losing 19 matches on the trot.
Batting first, a half-century from Tamim Iqbal and an unbeaten 80 off 84 balls from Mahmudullah helped Bangladesh post 290/9 in 50 overs.
Raza became the first Zimbabwean player after Brendan Taylor to make back-to-back ODI hundreds as Zimbabwe sealed a series win by chasing the total in 47.3 overs. (IANS)
