Four days after becoming the first non-Test side to beat a Test-playing nation in a one-day 50-over series, Afghanistan hammered home their superiority with a five-wicket win.
They had won the first Twenty20 clash at the same Queen's Sports Club venue by six wickets on Monday.
Mohammad Nabi, the team's leading all-rounder tweeted in reference to Monday's 7.5 magnitude quake which left almost 400 people dead and thousands homeless.
