Afghanistan beat Windies in 2nd T20
West Indies' top order crumbled
Seamer Karim Janat took 5-11 and led Afghanistan to a convincing 41-run victory over West Indies in their second Twenty20 on Saturday to level the three-match series at 1-1.
Janat's T20 figures were the best ever by an Afghanistan bowler.
The final match is on Sunday.
Afghanistan chose to bat and scored 147-7. Janat (26) was the joint top-scorer with opener Hazaratullah Zazai, who hit 26 off 15 deliveries.
Medium fast bowler Kesrick Williams was once again the pick of the West Indies bowlers with 3-23 that included the wickets of Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Zazai off successive deliveries in the fifth over.
But West Indies' top order crumbled against four overs from Janat - with hard-hitting Evin Lewis (14) holing out in the deep and captain Kieron Pollard (7) dismissed plumb leg before wicket off the right-arm seamer. West Indies finished on 106-8.
Off-spinner Samiullah Shinwari held the previous T20 record for Afghanistan with 5-13 against Kenya at Sharjah, United Arab Emirates in 2013.
