Bulawayo: Opener Vusi Sibanda reached his first one-day international century in seven years with the match-winning shot as Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh by seven wickets for a series victory in the deciding game on Wednesday.

Sibanda's 103 not out took Zimbabwe to 251-3 and past Bangladesh's 247-9 with 17 balls to spare at Queens Sports Club, giving the home team a 2-1 series win. Zimbabwe's successive victories after trailing in the ODI series finally separated the two teams after their drawn test series.

Sibanda, who made one century in his 102 previous matches, hit nine fours and two sixes to lead Zimbabwe's chase with the help of Sean Williams, who was 55 not out.
