Bangladesh is celebrating its first cricket series win over Pakistan, led by their opening batsman Tamim Iqbal's second successive century.

The home side enjoyed a 7-wicket win in the second one day international in Dhaka.

After restricting Pakistan to a modest 239 for six, Tamim anchored Bangladesh's run chase with an unbeaten 116 and they achieved their target with nearly 12 overs to spare.

Pakistan lost the opening game of the series by 79 runs on Friday, their first one day loss to Bangladesh in 16 years.

The final game is on Wednesday.
