Zimbabwe suffered a humiliating nine-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka after being bowled out for just 67 in the second one-day international in Harare on Saturday.

Spinner Ajantha Mendis took four for 15 and was ably assisted by pacemen Farveez Maharoof (three for 26) and Thilina Thushara (two for 17).

Kumar Sangakkara then flailed 28 not out off 25 balls as he and opener Upul Tharanga (26 not out) eased Sri Lanka to victory in the 18th over.

Sri Lanka lead the five-match series 2-0.
