Commentary

That brings us to the end of the second game in the five-match series. Bangladesh need to win on Tuesday to stay alive before the series moves to Bulawayo. Join us at 9.30 am local time (1.30 pm Bangladesh time). Till then this is Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers!

Brian Vitori is the Man of the Match. Vitori: "I just stuck to the team plans and tried to hit the good areas. Every wicket was a bonus for us. It was really just about tying them down, we knew they would crack at some point. We still have three more to go, we have to make sure we win them."

Taylor: "Seamers came up trumps again, Vitori outstanding again, it made the batters' job easier. We have won the first game in the past against Bangladesh and then lost the series, so the guys are hungry for more success. We used the morning conditions well and after that it flattened out."

Shakib: "You can say that (crisis time), three games we have been outplayed. We all have to put our hands up, it is not only about me or someone else, it is about the team. We have to show the world we are good enough to compete. We did not bat well, simple as that. Wicket was a good one, out top order is not getting runs, it is hard for the lower order to come in and score."

Hang on for the presentation

Zimbabwe have treated the bustling Sunday crowd to a comprehensive victory, they had wobbled during their chase in the first ODI, but today's pursuit was a lot more clinical. Sibanda leading the way again with an assault in Razzak's first over, and he did not bowl after that. Taibu ensured the chase was smooth without any hassles, but Brian Vitori it was who set up the win with another five-wicket haul.

Bangladesh just not getting runs on the board, their bowlers did not have anything to work with. Rubel did not find any movement when he came on for his second spell, unlike in the first game when he troubled the middle order.

Rubel Hossain to Taibu, 7 runs, Taibu shows how it is done, slithers forward and guides with superb timing past point, he even comes back for the third, but there's more timing, the ricochet off a direct hit goes in to the boundary, and the cheers for his 50 only get louder
