Afghanistan completed a two-game whitewash of Scotland with a seven-wicket win in the second Twenty20 international in Sharjah.

Chasing a target of 140, Mohammad Nabi's men reached their target with 15 balls to spare, Mohammad Shahzad leading the charge with a 25-ball 46.

Opener Karim Sadiq also chipped in with a tidy 34, with only Iain Wardlaw (2-32) making an impact with the ball for Scotland.

Scotland's innings of 139-7 had earlier contained three starts but no big score, with Calum MacLeod (31), Matt Machan (39) and Moneeb Iqbal (31) all coming and going with little support.

Beyond that trio, Scotland's highest scorer was the extras column, with 17, as Hamid Hasan ended the day with an impressive 4-22.

The sides will now play two one-day games before a four-day fixture which starts next Tuesday.
