Preview:

Afghanistan will be brimming with confidence after reeling off three consecutive victories over Zimbabwe in the space of five days – a 2-0 whitewash in the preceding T20I series and a 154-run demolition in the first ODI on Friday.

In the most recent encounter the Afghans racked up 333/5 – the second-highest ODI total in their history – before their spinners made short work of Zimbabwe's batting line-up, dismissing them for 179 in 35 overs.

Graeme Cremer's side will be hoping to rediscover the form which saw them defeat Sri Lanka on home soil last July – evidence that they can prosper in spin-friendly conditions – but it won't be easy against an increasingly impressive Afghanistan outfit.

Sharjah might not technically be home soil for Afghanistan, but conditions in the UAE suit them very well indeed and they will be confident of taking a 2-0 lead in this five-match series.
