Bangladesh have won the second one-day international against Zimbabwe by three wickets to claim their three-match series.

The tourists passed the victory target of 241 with five balls remaining to finish 7-242 and take an unassailable 2-0 lead.

Allrounder Shakib Al Hasan hit 96 not out to continue a brilliant series for him.

His five wickets in the first game took him top of Bangladesh's all-time highest wicket-takers in ODIs.

Shakib's unbeaten 69-run partnership with No.9 Mohammad Saifuddin (28 not out) got Bangladesh home.

Zimbabwe had a chance when Bangladesh were 5-130 but couldn't keep the pressure on.

Wessley Madhevere made 56 in Zimbabwe's 9-240 in 50 overs while Captain Brendan Taylor scored 46.

Shakib took two wickets with his left-arm spin to help Bangladesh's bowling effort, which was led by left-arm seamer Shoriful Islam (4-46).

The third ODI will be played at the same venue on Tuesday and will be followed by three T20 Internationals.
