Afghanistan 241/9 in 50 overs (Javed Ahmadi 76, Rahmat Shah 59; Sikandar Raza 2-41, Tendai Chatara 2-42) beat Zimbabwe 95 in 32.1 overs (Craig Ervine 34; Rashid Khan 3-13, Sharafuddin Ashraf 2-15, Mohamad Nabi 2-26) by 146 runs
Zimbabwe's miserable😖 limited-over series in Sharjah ended with another botched attempt at overcoming spin barrage💫 as Afghanistan🇦🇫 finished the series with a resounding 147-run victory. Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Sharafuddin Ashraf had a crippling effect on Zimbabwe's middle and lower order as Graeme Cremer's men folded😞 for 95 in response to Afghanistan's 240/9. With this win, Afghanistan finished the series 4⃣-1⃣.
Zimbabwe would've walked off at the halfway stage knowing fully well that they squandered the chance of bowling out Afghanistan for a sub-200 total but failed. Yet, the target🎯 wasn't very steep and very gettable. But their batsmen just couldn't apply themselves in the face of a familiar and relentless spin💫 once again. As has been the case all through the series, the only little fight came from senior likes Brendon Taylor and Craig Ervine, whose 46-run partnership gave hope, only to be crushed prematurely.
