With winning the toss in the 2nd ODI at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong, Bangladesh have been finding to keep the series alive against Zimbabwe after opting to field first.

Zimbabwe managed to score 246 runs losing 7 wickets in all 50 overs when Brendan Taylor bagged the highest 75 runs off 73 with nine fours and one six.

Right-arm fast-medium Bangladesh bowler Mohammad Saifuddin claimed 3/45 to help limit Zimbabwe to 246/7 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

Craig Ervine is out when Elton Chigumbura comes in for the visitors in second ODI against the strong home side.

Zimbabwe have not won an ODI against Bangladesh in their last 11 meetings.

Imrul Kayes' power-packed 144 powered Bangladesh to a 28-run win over Zimbabwe in the first ODI.

Imrul and Mohammad Saifuddin chose that moment to put on a record 127-run seventh wicket stand to pull Bangladesh to 271-8 in 50 overs.
