Afghanistan made history by reaching the top ten of the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI team rankings for the first time ever.
Afghanistan achieved the feat after they beat Zimbabwe by 49 runs in the first ODI in Sharjah on Friday.
Should Afghanistan go on to win the five-match series, they will remain in 10th place. However, if they lose the series, they will fall to 12th place behind Zimbabwe and Ireland.
Afghanistan have enjoyed a lot of success in 2015 as they made their maiden World Cup appearance, during which they beat Scotland by one wicket.
They also became the first Associate nation to beat a Test playing country in a bilateral series as they defeated Zimbabwe 3-2 in a five-match ODI series in Bulawayo in October.
