Afghanistan defend 245 in historic series win
An all-round performance from Afghanistan assured them a place in the history books: their 73-run victory against Zimbabwe meant they took the series 3-2, becoming the first Associate to beat a Full Member in a multi-match ODI bilateral series
4.50pm Afghanistan, meanwhile, are joyous in their celebration, and well they might be. This is another significant step on their journey as a cricketing nation, and one that will never be forgotten. Hugs and smiles all round. Sean Williams and Dawlat Zadran have shared the Man of the Match Award. Afghanistan are gathered, arm in arm, on the outfield. A scene of great unity, and one can easily sense just how much this means to them. Mohammad Nabi is the Man of the Series for his consistent runs. Afghanistan are presented with the series trophy, crowding around it as its held high against the setting sun.
That's all from us for now, what a historic day this has been for Afghanistan and Zimbabwe will be thoroughly disappointed because of their batting performance. Stay tuned for more updates from Liam Brickhill, he's at the ground and will send in a lot of details soon. Until then, ta ta!

Dawlat has two deliveries at Tinashe Panyangara. You'd fancy his chances, with the ball snaking around menacingly.
Naseer Mehraban: "Very well deserved 100 for Williams."
That is almost certainly the match gone for Zimbabwe. Afghanistan are about to make history at Queens Sports Club, with just Williams and the tail remaining.
