Second One Day International
Zimbabwe 351-7 (S Matsikenyeri 90, E Chigumbura 68, M Waller 63) v Kenya 200 (S O Tikolo 56)
Zimbabwe beat Kenya by 151 runs
Zimbabwe racked up their highest ever one-day international total as they crushed Kenya by 151 runs in the second ODI in Mombasa.
Stuart Matsikenyeri struck a career-best 90, Elton Chigumbura picked up where he left off in the opening match with a 29-ball 68 and Malcolm Waller hit his maiden ODI half-century as Zimbabwe amassed 351-7.
The daunting total was also the first time in Zimbabwe's history that they had surpassed 300 runs in consecutive limited-over matches.
The ever-reliable Steve Tikolo provided some resistance with his 21st ODI fifty for the home side.
However, wickets from all six of Zimbabwe's employed bowlers reduced Kenya to 200 all out.
After winning the toss, Zimbabwe captain Prosper Utseya gave his batsmen first use of another hard, flat wicket at the Mombasa Sports Club, and openers Hamilton Masakadze and Vusi Sibanda quickly tucked into some wayward bowling from the hosts.
The Zimbabwe pair put on 44 for the first wicket before Masakadze was trapped in front by the newly-introduced Nehemiah Odhiambo.
Sibanda made a useful 41 before he was stranded short of his ground. However, Matsikenyeri and Waller took up the mantle superbly with some brutal hitting.
The aggressive right-handers added 105 for the fourth wicket in just 14 overs as the Zimbabwe innings gathered momentum.
Waller brought up his first international fifty off 46 balls, and although he and Matsikenyeri fell in quick succession, Chigumbura ensured the Zimbabwe innings finished with a flourish.
The 22-year-old, who made a career-best 79 in the opening ODI, produced another devastating display of hitting and brought up his half-century off 22 balls - the second fastest by a Zimbabwean behind Doug Marillier.
Chasing an improbable 352 for victory, Kenya got off to a disastrous start when Seren Walters (0) and Alex Obanda (2) were removed in quick succession.
At 8-2, Tikolo and Kennedy Otieno (37) steadied the ship impressively by adding a quick-fire 87 for the third-wicket.
However, when both players were dismissed within 16 balls, any faint hopes of victory the home supporters may have had quickly disappeared.
Slow left-armer Keith Dabengwa (2-21) was the pick of the bowlers and Zimbabwe can clinch the series if they win the third ODI in Nairobi on Saturday.
