Sean Williams hit a career-best 78 not out as Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh by six wickets in the second one-day international in Bulawayo yesterday to set up a series decider

Playing in only his second one-day match since the 2011 World Cup, Williams was aided by Malcolm Waller’s unbeaten 39 as he calmly saw Zimbabwe to their target of 253 with 13 balls to spare.

Abdur Razzak’s maiden half-century in international cricket had hauled Bangladesh to a competitive total as Zimbabwe were made to regret four dropped catches, but Williams’ sensible batting won the day and squared the three-match series at one apiece. Razzak arrived at the crease with the tourists struggling on 185 for seven in the 44th over after they had been asked to bat first, and duly clubbed a 21-ball fifty to take them to 252 for nine.
