Second ODI, report: Riding on Brendan Taylor's magnificent 125, Zimbabwe beat Afghanistan by 154 runs in the second one-day international at Sharjah on Sunday to level the five-match series.
Taylor's century propelled Zimbabwe to 333-5 from their 50 overs, before skipper Graeme Cremer took 4-41 with his leg-spin as Afghanistan slumped to 89-7 on their way to 179 all out.
Both teams are warming up for the 2019 World Cup qualifying tournament in Zimbabwe next month.
Wicketkeeper Taylor put on 135 for the fourth wicket with Sikandar Raza before being bowled by Afghan star Rashid Khan.
The 19-year-old leg-spinner returned figures of 2-36 from his 10 overs, but the Afghanistan seamers took the brunt of Taylor and Raza's hitting, with Dawlat Zadran and Gulbadin Naib conceding 181 runs from 17 overs between them.
All-rounder Raza's 92 came from 74 balls with 13 boundaries including four sixes.
The Afghanistan chase never got going, with the dangerous Mohammad Shahzad dismissed for just 15 as they slipped to 39-5.
The in-form Mohammad Nabi added 53 with first-match centurion Rahmat Shah, but Zimbabwe captain Cremer took two wickets in two balls in his first over.
