Over 28. 8 runs. Bowler: Ryan Burl. Afghanistan: 4-158(rr 5.64)
FOUR! Ryan Burl to Najibullah Zadran. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Hammered back over the bowler's head. That's an appropriate way to seal a completely dominant victory, Afghanistan go 2-1 up in the series.
That was yet another utterly one-sided affair in Sharjah, continuing the theme of this series so far. Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Zadran took eight wickets between them to run through Zimbabwe for just 154, the tourists having no answer for the skilfull spin-duo. The former took five wickets for just 24 runs in a parsimonious spell, running through the lower order with seeming ease. The hosts then took the aggressive approach to the small target, and although it cost them a few wickets they cantered home in the end. Half centuries from Rahmat Shah and Nasir Jamal ensured Afghanistan take a 2-1 lead in the series.
FOUR! Ryan Burl to Najibullah Zadran. Leg spinner short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Rank long hop given exactly what it deserved.
Ryan Burl to Najibullah Zadran. Googly length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Burl.
