Afghanistan 253 for 9 (Rahmat 50, Nabi 48, Mpofu 3-46) beat Zimbabwe 54 (Nabi 3-14, Hamza 3-20) by 106 runs (D/L Method)

HARARE: Afghanistan's bowlers were sensational as they dismissed Zimbabwe for a mere 54 runs in 13.5 overs to win the fifth one-day international by 106 via Duckworth-Lewis  on Sunday.

The smashing victory meant that the Asian 'minnows' secured a memorable series victory, 3-2.

The hosts were set an adjusted target of 161 from 22 overs after there was a rain-delay of three hours at the innings break.

Mohammad Nabi and Amir Hamza were the chief destroyers with ball in hand and helped themselves to three wickets each.

Earlier, Afghanistan amassed 253 for 9 runs from their allotted 50 overs after captain Asghar Stanikzai won the toss and elected to bat.

Middle-order batsman Rahmat Shah was the top-scorer with 50 from 79 balls which included just the one boundary before he was run out by Malcolm Waller at the Harare Sports Club.

Seamer Chris Mpofu, who has been in prolific wicket-taking form for the Africans, bagged another 3 wickets for 46 runs in 9 overs.

At the start of play the home team remained unchanged while Afghanistan made no less than four changes.
