commentary

With just one more T20I to go, Zimbabwe need to come back strong tomorrow. Difficult, given they have now lost six out of six T20Is to Afghanistan, but it's certainly not impossible. Looking forward to a better contest tomorrow, ta-ta!

21:58 Local Time, 17:58 GMT, 23:28 IST: Convincing from Afghanistan, despite the fact that they've lost five wickets in a small chase. It was all set up by the bowlers in the first innings, who dragged Zimbabwe from scoring 50 inside 5 overs to just 120/9 in 20 overs. Slower balls from pacers did the trick and then Rashid Khan picked three on a sluggish pitch. Shahzad scored a quickfire 20 on his return from the one-year doping ban and despite wickets falling regularly, Nabi's 27-ball 40 made short work of the chase.
