BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe (AP) -- Opener Sikandar Raza smashed seven sixes in his 141 to power Zimbabwe to an eight-wicket win over Afghanistan in their second one-day international on Sunday.

Raza was part of a 224-run opening partnership with Hamilton Masakadza as Zimbabwe chased down Afghanistan's total of 256-7 with ease for a 2-0 lead in the four-match series. Masakadza made 93 as Zimbabwe cruised to 257-2 in 43.3 overs.

Raza faced just 133 balls and also hit 11 fours as he punished Afghanistan's bowling at Queens Sports Club.

Afghanistan had been hopeful of levelling the series after Usman Ghani made a century opening the batting for the visitors. But Ghani's 118 was the only major contribution for Afghanistan with the next highest score 23 not out from tailender Gulbadin Naib.
