LONDON, Aug 16 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe’s Charles Coventry smashed 194 not out against Bangladesh on Sunday to equal the record individual score in a one-day international.
The 26-year-old Coventry’s 156-ball knock in Bulawayo matched the effort of Pakistan’s Saeed Anwar against India in 1997. He his 16 fours and seven sixes.
Coventry lifted Zimbabwe to a total of 312 for eight but Bangladesh overhauled it with 13 balls to spare, clinching a four-wicket victory to take an unassailable 3-1 lead in the series.
