Zimbabwe won by 6 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

It came down to the final over, but it seemed Zimbabwe were always just in front in this chase. Mutumbami's aggressive knock ensured a good start, and though neither Chibhabha nor Ervine made their presence felt, Zimbabwe never lost wickets in clumps.

Williams and Chigumbura added 61 in partnership to take Zimbabwe close, and then Raza came out and hurried things along with a quickfire 29.

Zimbabwe will also be pleased that Chigumbura spent some time at the wicket, regaining confidence and timing to see Zimbabwe home. Afghanistan really lost this game through their middle order slump - without that collapse, they'd have reached a much more challenging total.

Richmond Mutumbami is Man of the Match for his 74
