Afghanistan created history on 24 October after recording a sensational 3-2 One-Day International (ODI) series win against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo. The minnows also became the first Associate nation to win a bilateral ODI series against a Test-playing country.

Afghanistan set a 246-run target for the hosts after being put in to bat first, thanks to two half-centuries from Noor Ali Zadran (54) and Mohammad Nabi (53).

In reply, Zimbabwe were bundled out for 172 in the 44.1 overs despite a valiant century from Sean Williams (102).

Paceman Dawlat Zadran was the pick of the bowlers for Afghanistan as claimed four wickets and was ably supported by left-arm spinner Amir Hamza (3-41).
