Harare, Zimbabwe, Aug 14: Brian Vitori became the first bowler to take five wickets in each of his first two career one-day internationals as Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh by seven wickets in the second one-dayer on Sunday to go 2-0 up in the five-match series.

Vitori , who was named man-of-the-match after taking 5-30 in the first ODI on Friday that Zimbabwe won by four wickets, claimed 5-20 with another impressive display of swing bowling at Harare Sports Club.

The 21-year-old fast bowler again kept the Bangladesh batsmen off balance, removing Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan, Nasir Hossain and Abdur Razzak to put the hosts in command. Naser Hossain led the Bangladesh batsmen with 63 from 93 deliveries.

Zimbabwe's chase was led by opening batsman Vusi Sibanda, who top-scored with 67 runs off 96 balls, sharing a crucial 83-run second wicket stand off 110 balls with Hamilton Masakadza (38) after losing captain Brendan Taylor (3) early. AP
