8.35pm So, Bangladesh do it again, they complete yet another series win at home after taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in this three-match series. Bangladesh's bowlers were terrific yet again throughout that innings although they were made to sweat when Raza and Chigumbura were steadily getting Zimbabwe to close. However, once that stand was broken it was all downhill for Zimbabwe. Most of their batsmen struggled to get in and if they did, couldn't find run-scoring too easy. Bangladesh have completed yet another win, this time without Shakib Al Hasan. Most of the bowlers contributed and continually chipped away at the wickets, eventually bundling out Zimbabwe for 183 in the 44th over. Imrul Kayes is the Man of the Match for his match-defining 76

That is from us for the second ODI. We will be back to bring you coverage of the third and final ODI. Until then, bye.

Nasir Hossain to Cremer, OUT, and that will be it. Easy win for Bangladesh and they complete the series win and a 2-0 lead in the series. Cremer runs past one as he tries to find some runs and Rahim does the rest.

Nasir Hossain to Muzarabani, 1 run, run-out chance missed. Pushed closer to slip and they go for the single. Mushy shouts bowler, bowler. But the throw is to the keeper

Salman: "I am interested to see how AB can play Mustafiz's off-cutter!!! He will be real challenge for any player in future."

Mustafizur Rahman to Muzarabani, 1 leg bye, huge appeal but a very optimistic shout. Full down leg strikes Muzarabani well down leg

Bangladesh on the verge of yet another series win at home

Mustafizur Rahman to Panyangara, OUT, and another, Zimbabwe are capitulating now. Short outside off, TP looks to pull into the leg side but the ball hurries onto him and deviates a touch too. Spoons up for Mash at point and Zim are nine down

Mustafizur Rahman to Panyangara, no run, another delivery which just beats that outside edge. The offcutter causing problems yet again

Mustafizur Rahman to Panyangara, FOUR runs, down leg and four. Poor delivery. Full down leg, TP walks across and just gets some bat on that to the fine leg boundary.

Mustafizur Rahman to Panyangara, no run, that quick offcutter outside off, snakes past the outside edge. No clue of that had TP

Warburton: "ODI cricket is so much more interesting after the batting powerplay was scrapped and 5 fielders allowed outside. Chasing 300 was like chasing 200 in the old days! Even with 241, this game COULD have gone either way. But its most definitely now with the Lads in Green."

Mustafizur Rahman to Jongwe, OUT, bowled im. Finally, Mustafizur hits the stumps. A quick offcutter and the off stump is uprooted. A bit too full but Jongwe misses and the stumps are rattled. Is that the final nail in the coffin? The crowd goes wild

Nasir Hossain to Waller, OUT, outside edge and taken by Rahim. Too short outside off and Waller rocks back and tries to power the ball through the covers but gets a thin outside edge which is well taken by Rahim standing up. Just chippin' away at these wickets are Bangladesh
