The 27-year-old opener carried his bat having already hit Afghanistan's first ever century in the format, reaching his hundred off 52 balls with eight fours and eight sixes.
By the end of the blitz, the opener had hit 10 boundaries and faced 67 balls in total to continue his impressive form in the Gulf having already made 131 not out in the second one-day international against Zimbabwe two weeks ago.
Zimbabwe were eventually all out for 134 yesterday with 11 balls to spare as Afghanistan swept the two-game series having won the first match by just five runs on Friday.
They had earlier claimed the ODI series 3-2 to follow their victory against the same opponents in Africa in October. Shahzad's unbeaten 118 was one short of South Africa's Faf du Plessis's 119 against the West Indies in Johannesburg in January last year.
The highest ever score in T20 internationals is Australia's Aaron Finch's mammoth 156 against England in Southampton in 2013 while New Zealand's Brendon McCullum is second on the all-time list thanks to his 123 against Bangladesh in Pallekele in 2012.
