Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 76 runs in 2nd ODI

Dhaka- Humari news, Pakistan cricket team beat Bangladesh by 76 runs and now leads the series 2-0 and now in undefeated position in 3 match series.Nasir Hossain smashed his maiden century for Bangladesh but they were unable to prevent Pakistan from winning series.Having made 262 for seven in their 50 overs, Pakistan restricted Bangladesh to 186-7 in Dhaka to notch their record sixth consecutive one-day international series win.

Pakistan are unbeaten in a bilateral one-day series in 2011, despite ongoing problems, which have included a spot-fixing scandal and the absence of international cricket in the country because of security concerns.

They secured series wins over New Zealand 3-2, West Indies 3-2, Ireland 2-0, Zimbabwe 3-0 and Sri Lanka 4-1.

Pakistan won five successive series from March 1989 to December 1990 under captain Imran Khan before Waqar Younis and Inzamam-ul-Haq led them to the same feat in 2002.

"The team has been playing well. No opposition is easy to play against. So I take this series win as a complement for the Pakistan team," said Pakistan coach Mohsin Khan.

"The credit goes to the whole Pakistan team and management."

Umar Akmal, who added 83 runs with Misbah-ul-Haq for the fourth wicket, made Pakistan's only half century before he was caught by Shafiul Islam off Shakib Al Hasan for 59.

Shahid Afridi was dropped by Shafiul on eight and went on to reach 42 off 27 balls with three fours and two sixes.
