2nd ODI: Bangladesh v Zimbabwe (Winner: BAN)

ZIM 191 (C Ervine 42*, P Utseya 32, A Razzak 5/30, S Hasan 4/39) lost to BAN 194/4 (R Hasan 65, J Siddique 53, R Price 2/41, K Dabengwa 1/17) by 6 wickets with 62 balls remaining.

   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: A Razzak Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur (3 Dec,2010)

Zimbabwe started the series on a high note but couldn’t take the momentum into the second ODI. Although things looked promising for Zimbabwe at 103-3 in 30th over (at which time they also sported a healthy 37% chance in the game), subsequent brilliant efforts from both Hasan and Razzaq ensured that Bangladesh didn’t let this match slip by. Result- Zimbabwe could never grow on the foundation they had laid. Mpofu did interest the Zimbabwe’s chances early in the game (the last point when Zim managed to be above 37%) but thereafter Bangladesh sailed through smoothly. Except for the early part of the Zim innings, Bangladesh never let the control on the match go.
