Bangladesh winning streak continues

Bulwayo: Shakib Al Hasan's brilliant century ( 104) helped Bangaladesh to thrash Zimbabwe by 49 runs in their best of five One Day International series at the Queen's Sports Club here on Tuesday.


Al Hasan's superb innings helped his country to their highest ODI score of 320-8 in 50 overs with Zimbabwe totalling 271 all out in 46.1 overs.

Tamim Iqbal's beefy 79 likewise underpinned the tourists before he was run out - with Al Hasan himself suffering a similar fate.

That proved too tough a call for Zimbabwe to match, though half-centuries from Charles Coventry and Sean Williams saw them put up a strong fight.

Coventry found offspinner Naeem Islam to his liking as he slammed two big sixes but the pressure of keeping that going proved too much for both him and Williams.

Elton Chigumbura also weighed in with a defiant 31 but could not save a result for the hosts - beaten by 4 wickets in the first match on Sunday - as he was run out at the death.
