Bangladesh Cricketers Claim Second Straight ODI Win Over Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe's national cricket squad suffered a second defeat at the hands of Bangladesh on Tuesday in their series of one-day internationals at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo, losing by 49 runs despite running up a score of 271 to Bangladesh's 320.

Zimbabwe's Sean Williams scored 71 runs while Charles Coventry posted 61 runs – but the home side fell short again after losing on Sunday.

Cricket commentator Dumisani Zikali told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye that captain Shakib al Hasan of the Bangladesh side put in a spectacular performance from which the Zimbabwe team might well take some lessons.

The teams play again Friday for the third of five one-day internationals.
