Zimbabwe collapsed to 129 all out after 32.4 overs after their captain Graeme Cremer won the toss and elected to bat first as they aim to stay alive in the third one-day international against Afghanistan in Harare on Tuesday.
The hosts began their innings poorly and slumped to 26 for three inside the opening ten overs. Things only got worse from then on, with number three batsman Tarisai Musakanda the only one to offer resistance with a composed knock of 60 off 74 deliveries which included six boundaries and one six.
Afghansitan's Gulbadin Naib was the star performer with ball in hand with his six overs yielding figures of 4 for 27.
The southern African side have underwhelmed so far and find themselves 2-0 down in the five-match series being played at the Harare Sports Club.
Earlier, the tourists made two changes as Hashmatullah Shahidi and Dawlat Zadran making way for Farid Malik and Samiullah Shenwari respectively, while the hosts opted to rope in Sean Williams at the expense of Hamilton Masakadza.
