Rashid Khan Skittles Zimbabwe to Give Afghanistan Victory

Leg-spin sensation Rashid Khan took five wickets as Afghanistan cruised to a six-wicket win over Zimbabwe in the third one-day international at Sharjah yesterday evening.
The Afghans now lead the series 2-1 with two matches remaining, as the teams warm up for the 2019 World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe next month.
Zimbabwe won the toss and batted first, but collapsed from 117-3 to 154 all out as 19-year-old Khan finished with figures of 5-24.

Afghanistan will look to win the series in the fourth ODI at Sharjah on Friday, with the sides set to meet again in Group B of World Cup qualifying on March 6.

Qualification for the 10-team World Cup in England and Wales next year would continue Afghanistan’s remarkable rise, with the war-torn nation to play their maiden Test match against India at Bangalore in June.
