KABUL (Pajhwok): Afghanistan have trounced Zimbabwe in the second T20 match by 21 runs in Harare, clinching the series.

The visitors, winning the toss, elected to bat and posted a total of 170 for 5 in the stipulated 20 overs.

Najibullah Zadran smashed 57, Mohammad Nabi 43 and Hazratullah Zazai chipped in with 28.

Zimbabwe could not chase down the 171-run target and managed to score 149 for the loss of seven wickets.  The hosts had also lost the series opener.

Rashid Khan grabbed two wickets, Nabi, Fazal Haq Farooqi, Nijat Massoud and Karim Janat took one scalp apiece.

It was another clinical display from Afghanistan, who white-washed the hosts in the ODI series a few days earlier.

The visitors, scoring their fifth victory on the trot in the tour, have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. As for the hosts, they once again crumbled under pressure.
