Rob Nicol scored 146 runs and veteran allrounder Jacob Oram added three wickets to a dashing half century as New Zealand beat Zimbabwe by 141 runs in the second limited-overs international on Monday.

Nicol brought up his second century from only five one-day international appearances and the fifth-highest innings by a New Zealander in 50-overs matches, batting until the 49th over to anchor New Zealand's innings of 372-6.

The total was New Zealand's third-highest in one-day internationals after its 402-2 against Ireland in 2008 and 397-5 against Zimbabwe in 2005.

Oram chipped in 59 from 28 balls, batting at his highest position in the New Zealand order in 10 years, then took 3-29 as Zimbabwe was held to 231-8 in reply.
