Toss report: Zimbabwe captain Craig Ervine won the toss and chose to bowl at Harare Sports Club on Saturday in the first of three one-day internationals against Afghanistan.

The hosts gave first caps to right-hand opening batsman Innocent Kaia and right-arm fast bowler Tanaka Chivanga as they sought to get back on the winning trail after a series loss to Sri Lanka.

Afghanistan arrived in Zimbabwe to commence the twice postponed tour — comprising three ODIs and three Twenty 20 internationals — having lost a one-day series against Bangladesh.
