Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan T20I highlights:
Highlights: The day belonged to Zimbabwe captain Hamilton Masakadza as he struck a quick-fire half century to win the match for his country. Masakadza struck 71 off 42 balls with four fours and five sixes to lead Zimbabwe to an impressive seven-wicket victory over Afghanistan in their last match of the Twenty20 tri-series in Chittagong. Earlier, Chris Mpofu picked up four wickets to restrict Rashid Khan’s Afghanistan to 155-8 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. The defeat ended Afghanistan’s record 12-match winning streak in T20Is while Zimbabwe got their first win of the tournament after three successive losses.
Toss: Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bat. Afghanistan are already through to the finals along with Bangladesh and this match is a dead rubber. Zimbabwe will hope to bow out with a win, though.
