Sikander Raza, Zimbabwe's star all-rounder, is in top touch and is all set to take on India in the upcoming ODI series in their backyard.

Sikandar Raza and Regis Chakabva scored centuries as Zimbabwe successfully chased down almost 300 runs to win the second one-day international against Bangladesh on Sunday and take an unassailable 2-0 series lead.

Bangladesh scored 290-9 after losing the toss and being asked to bat first. Zimbabwe reached 291-5 in 47.3 overs in reply for a five-wicket victory.

Raza was 117 not out off 127 deliveries, including eight fours and four sixes, and Chakabva was even faster with a 75-ball 102. The pair took Zimbabwe from 49-4 to 250-5.

Sikandar Raza becomes the first player to score multiple hundreds at No.5 or below in ODI chases of the same series.

135*(109) in the first match

117*(127) in the second match

Mahmudullah top scored for Bangladesh with 80 not out off 84 balls. Raza took 3-56 in 10 overs of spin.

The third and final ODI is on Wednesday.
