Honours were shared in the first two matches, with each side registering a 154-run win over the other, Afghanistan defeated Zimbabwe by six wickets in the third Zimbabwe, game to take a 2-1 lead in the series. Rashid Khan's five-wicket haul helped bowl Zimbabwe out for 154, a target that Afghanistan chased with 135 balls to spare.

According to ICC's official website, the surface is expected to assist the batsmen throughout. Short boundaries mean there is value for shots, and the first Powerplay has been crucial for both teams. The total of 300 has been breached twice so far, and barring the last innings by Zimbabwe, in which they collapsed abruptly, the batsmen have made merry once they have got their eye in.

Teams: 

Afghanistan: M Shahzad, Ihsanullah, R Shah, A Stanikzai, N Jamal, N Zadran, M Nabi, R Khan, S Ashraf, D Zadran, M Zadran.
Zimbabwe: H Masakadza, S Mire, B Taylor, C Ervine, S Raza, R Burl, T Musakanda, G Cremer, K Jarvis, T Chatara, B Muzarabani.
