BULAWAYO, ZIMBABWE: Afghanistan clinched a 2-0 victory over Zimbabwe in their two-match Twenty20 series Wednesday and dedicated their win to victims of this week’s earthquake which rocked their country and neighbouring Pakistan.

Four days after becoming the first non-Test side to beat a Test-playing nation in a one-day 50-over series, Afghanistan hammered home their superiority with a five-wicket win.

They had won the first Twenty20 clash at the same Queen’s Sports Club venue by six wickets on Monday.

“Our win is dedicated to all quake-smitten people of Afghanistan’s major earthquake,” tweeted Mohammad Nabi, the team’s leading all-rounder in reference to Monday’s 7.5 magnitude quake which left almost 400 people dead and thousands homeless.

Opener Usman Ghani smashed a 45-ball 65 with man-of-the-match Guldabin Naib hitting an undefeated 56 off just 31 balls with seven boundaries.
