Abu Dhabi: Feb 27, 2012

England batsman struggled against the guile of Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal as the visitors reach 129 for six in the third and the final T20 match in Abu Dhabi on Monday.

Kevin Pietersen scored an unbeaten 62 to fire the visitors to a respectable score but Ajmal took four wickets to provide Pakistan a platform to go for a win.

England, electing to bat after winning the toss, got off to a shaky start losing Craig Kieswetter in the fifth over.

The Stuart Broad-led team could never recover from it as they slipped to five for 89 in the 15th over.

Samit Patel and Pietersen tried to resurrect the English innings putting up a quick-fire partnership of 20 runs.

But, Patel, in the process of increasing run-rate, feel to Ajmal, who had the all-rounder stumped by Umar Akmal.

Stuart Broad then held fort along with Kevin Pietersen to propel England past 120.

Brief Scores: England 129 for 6 in 20 overs (Kevin Pietersen 62, Craig Kieswetter 17; Saeed Ajmal 4 for 23, Aizaz Cheema 1 for 25) vs Pakistan
