BANGLADESH recorded its fifth straight series victory at home, sealing a 58-run win over Zimbabwe in the second one-day International on Monday.

Opener Imrul Kayes lifted Bangladesh to 241-9, hitting 76 in his comeback. Zimbabwe was bowled out for 183 in 43.2 overs with Mustafizur Rahman returning 3-33

"The captain (Mashrafe Mortaza) backed me ahead of the match," said Kayes, who played his first one-day International since the World Cup in March.

"He told me to play my natural game and I applied myself well until the rash shot."

Fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain (2-22) played a critical role, claiming the wickets of Sikandar Raza and Elton Chigumbura in consecutive overs after the pair had combined for 73 runs to raise Zimbabwe's hopes of victory.

Chigumbura was top scorer for Zimbabwe with 47 and Raza made 33.

"It's particularly disappointing," Chigumbura said. "The target was not difficult but our top order couldn't play well."

The pair had come together with the score on 78-4 with another heavy defeat on the cards, two days after they lost the first one-day International by 145 runs.

Chigumbura, the Zimbabwe captain, hit Mashrafe Mortaza for a six and two fours in successive deliveries. Raza then got nine off Arafat Sunny in the following over.

Al-Amin came to the crease and removed Raza after he sliced to mid-on.

In his next over, he dismissed Chigumbura with a slower leg-cutter.

The remaining batsmen made just 27 as Rahman sliced the lower order.

Off-spinner Nasir Hossain also took 2-36.

Nasir had scored 41 as he and Rahman (33) supported Kayes to give the bowlers a good total to defend on a slower surface.

Kayes replaced Shakib Al Hasan in the side and hit four sixes and six fours in his 89-ball innings. He was caught by Graeme Cremer at long-off, off the bowling of Sean Williams.

Kayes shared an opening stand of 32 with Tamim Iqbal, who made 19 before being caught by Chuma Chibhabha off Tinashe Panyangra.


The Zimbabwe bowlers fared better than the first match, keeping Bangladesh's batsmen at bay after they decided to bowl first.

Panyangra led the bowling with 3-41. Fellow paceman Taurai Muzurabani and Cremer claimed two wickets each.

Most of the Bangladeshi batsmen gave away their wickets easily against a disciplined Zimbabwe bowling attack.
