Watch Afg v Zim highlights today – from Harare Sports Club (Zimbabwe) Thursday 16th February 2017. All teams are preparing for ICC Champion’s Trophy 2017 now Zimbabwe ODI team is also playing five ODI matches series with Afghanistan which is an unpredictable team and I think it will be very helpful for Zimbabwe to prepare themselves in good form for next events.

Zimbabwe needs matches, and they need them desperately if only to figure out who their best is. To say they have very little idea of that is putting it mildly. To that end, Zimbabwe has named a squad that includes six changes from the one that played in a triangular series against Sri Lanka and West Indies in November. That’s almost half the squad that is different, and it suggests they are still very much in a look-and-see phase.
