In the second ODI, Zimbabwe batted first and racked up 241 runs on the board. In reply, Bangladesh chased down the target in the 50th over, thanks to an outstanding performance by all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
Bangladesh all-rounder smashed 96 runs from 109 deliveries also helped his team cross the finish line.

The surface at the Harare Sports Club is a batting-friendly wicket and is expected to assist the batters hugely in both innings.
The bowlers can make use of the short delivery as a wicket-taking option. Pacers can extract extra bounce if they bend their back.
Having said that, the batters will do get ample opportunities to score runs if they play according to merit. Anything around 230-250 will be a good total at this venue.
