Match Ended   
228 (50.0/50)
229/2 (44.3/50)
Afghanistan beat Zimbabwe by 8 wickets
That's all we have from this lopsided game. The last ODI is on Thursday, 9th June 2022, at 12.45 pm IST (7.15 am GMT). You can join us in advance for the build-up. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Ibrahim Zadran (120*) is the Player of the Match! The opener says that he wanted to play his natural game. Adds that the partnership with Rahmat was wonderful and he really enjoys batting with him. Mentions that they got 20 points in the Super League and they want to play positive cricket to win the next game as well.
Hashmatullah Shahidi, the captain of Afghanistan, says that he is very happy with the win and the way his team is performing at the moment. Adds that they wanted to get all 30 points from this tour and they will be targeting 10 more in the next game. When asked about making changes to his winning XI for the next game, Shahidi replies that he will think about it in the coming days.
Craig Ervine, the captain of Zimbabwe, says that they knew the pitch flattens out in the afternoon and that's why it was important to get partnerships. Feels that they had a reasonable start but didn't kick on afterwards. Shares that this pitch was much better than the first game and 260-270 would have been competitive. Emphasizes on the getting the partnerships and this is the area they need to work on.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier in the match, Fazalhaq Farooqi was exceptional with the new ball and got plenty of movement. Zimbabwe stuttered at the start but then recovered through a few partnerships. Innocent Kaia, Sikandar Raza and Ryan Burl played handy knocks, but the innings lacked the overall momentum to post a challenging total on the board.
Zimbabwe were listless with the ball, and they weren't great with their ground fielding either. Yet another disappointing outing for them. On a surface, that had something for the pacers, especially with the new ball, the likes of Blessing Muzarabani and Tendai Chatara didn't find enough to trouble the batters, and the rest of the bowlers also struggled for rhythm and penetration. Plenty of work to do for the hosts to improve their game in both the facets of the game.
Chasing a below-par target, the Afghans did lose Rahmanullah Gurbaz for yet another low score but Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmat Shah batted positively and helped Afghanistan navigate through Powerplay 1 without any more damage. The number of boundaries that the Afghan batters scored early in the innings was the main highlight, and that, in a way, never allowed Zimbabwe to exert any pressure. Thereafter, the duo raised a record stand for the second wicket and put the chase to bed. Zadran notched up his maiden ODI hundred in the process, but Rahmat missed out on yet another ton on this tour, this time by 12 runs.
Easy victory for Afghanistan. A bit boring in terms of competition but certainly commanding from Afghanistan's point of view. Another 10 points for them, and they have strengthened their spot at number 3 on the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League 2020-2022/23 table.

OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Donald Tiripano finds the breakthrough finally for Zimbabwe. A dagger through the heart for Rahmat Shah. He is unable to get to a major milestone for the second time in this series. He will be livid with himself. It is a short ball, wide outside off. Shah goes hunting away from his body with a cut shot. He edges it behind where the keeper, Regis Chakabva makes no mistake. The umpire though has a look at the front foot. The replays show Donald Tiripano had some part of the foot behind the line. Rahmat Shah continues his walk to the dressing room.

Drinks break. Afghanistan are in the driving seat at the moment. Ibrahim Zadran seems to be settled in and would hope to make his innings count. Zimbabwe, on the flip side, have not been great with the ball. They have brilliant individual players but have been unable to operate as a team. They need wickets to get back in this game but no idea from where it will come. Looks like one-way traffic again.

SAFE! A better throw from the deep would have got Ibrahim Zadran. Short in length and outside off, Ibrahim Zadran rocks back and forces it through cover-point. He wants the second run and scampers back. Both the batters are ball-watching and there is a minor collision. Meanwhile, the throw comes to the keeper but Regis Chakabva has to collect it way ahead of the stumps. He then deflects it onto the stumps and appeals. The replays find Ibrahim safe.
Is that a run out? The square leg umpire takes it upstairs to confirm. The replays suggest that Ibrahim Zadran had his blade grounded as the bails were coming off. The big screen shows NOT OUT.

OUT! LBW! Blessing Muzarabani appeals and the umpire raises his finger. Rahmanullah Gurbaz has a chat with his partner at the other end and opts to go for the review. It is a length ball, that pitches outside off and nips in off the deck. Rahmanullah Gurbaz is caught inside his crease. He tries to flick it away but fails to get any bat on it. He gets pinged on his pads. Blessing appeals and the umpire wastes no time in raising his finger. The UltraEdge confirms no bat is involved. The Ball Tracking shows three reds. Early blow to Afghanistan.
