    OUT! Bowled. Graeme Cremer to Mujeeb Zadran. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, missed.

    It's all over in Sharjah as Cremer spins one through the gap and knocks over off stump. Zimbabwe have beaten Afghanistan convincingly and square the series at 1-1.

    It was always going to be a tough chase for Afghanistan but early wickets didn't help their cause. Tendai Chatara was superb with the new ball and did the majority of the damage before Graeme Cremer cleaned up the tail. Join us for the 3rd ODI on Tuesday at the same venue.
