Zimbabwe batsman equals Saeed Anwar’s world record

Zimbabwe batsman Charles Coventry equaled the record of the highest individual ODI innings, set by Pakistan’s Saeed Anwar, smashing an unbeaten 194 runs against Bangladesh in the fourth One-day International here on Sunday.

Batting first, Zimbabwe made 312 runs for eight wickets in the allotted 50 overs at the Queen’s Sports Club ground in Bulawayo.

The main highlight of the innings was Coventry’s marathon batting as the right-hand middle-order batsman struck seven sixes and 16 fours, facing 156 balls.

He equaled the 12-year-old world record of stylish left-hand batsman Saeed Anwar, who made 194 from 146 balls against India at Chennai.
