Ajmal keeps England down to 129 http://www.brecorder.com/sports/cricket/pak-vs-eng-2012/47451-ajmal-keeps-england-down-to-129-.htmlhttp://www.brecorder.com/sports/cricket/pak-vs-eng-2012/47451-ajmal-keeps-england-down-to-129-.html ABU DHABI: Off-spinner Saeed Ajmal took four wickets as a disciplined Pakistan bowling attack restricted England to 129-6 in the third and final Twenty20 international at Dubai Stadium here on Monday.

The 34-year-old finished with 4-23 -- his third four wicket haul in the shortest form of the game -- to keep Pakistan in the hunt for the series-clinching win after Stuart Broad won the toss and elected to bat.

Ajmal, who destroyed England in the preceding three-Test series with 24 wickets to help Pakistan to a 3-0 rout, put the brakes on his rival's progress as he bowled with guile and penetration.

Opener Kevin Pietersen top scored with 62 not out, keeping one end intact during his 52-ball knock for his seventh T20 fifty. He hit six boundaries and a six off the last ball of the innings.

Ajmal provided Pakistan with the breakthrough after England raced to 29 by the fifth over, dismissing Craig Kieswetter (17) off a lofted shot at long-on where Shoaib Malik took the catch.

Kieswetter had hit a four and six off paceman Umar Gul in the third over.

Pakistan had Ravi Bopara caught behind off paceman Aizaz Cheema for one and Eoin Morgan run out for nine before Ajmal accounted for Jonny Bairstow (three), Jos Butler (seven) and Samit Patel (16).

Pakistan won the first match by eight runs while England won the second by 38 runs -- both played in Dubai.

Swann helps England restrict Pakistan to 144-6 http://www.brecorder.com/sports/cricket/pak-vs-eng-2012/46960-swann-helps-england-restrict-pakistan-to-144-6-.htmlhttp://www.brecorder.com/sports/cricket/pak-vs-eng-2012/46960-swann-helps-england-restrict-pakistan-to-144-6-.html DUBAI: Off-spinner Graeme Swann took 3-13 as England kept Pakistan down to 144-6 in the first of three Twenty20 internationals at Dubai Stadium on Thursday.

Swann rocked the middle-order with a burst of three wickets off eight balls to derail Pakistan after skipper Stuart Broad elected to field after winning the toss.

England, the reigning Twenty20 world champions, started the match on a high note after sweeping Pakistan 4-0 in the one-day series and once again pegged their opponents back through some disciplined bowling and fielding.

Pakistan made a flying start with debutant Awais Zia hitting a four and six during his 12-ball 18 but Pakistan lost four wickets in the space of eight runs as Asad Shafiq (19) fell run out, Mohammad Hafeez (23), Shahid Afridi (seven) and Umar Akmal (nought) followed each other, with Swann taking the last three.

It was left to captain Misbah-ul Haq (26 not out) and Shoaib Malik (39) to put on 71 for the sixth wicket to take Pakistan to a respectable total.

Malik hit four boundaries and six off 33 balls before he fell to a superb catch by Jonny Bairstow off Jade Dernbach off the last ball of the innings.

Misbah gave Malik good support during his run-a-ball innings, hitting one four and a six.

Pakistan brought in Zia and allrounder Hammad Azam while Ravi Bopara and Swann returned for England after missing the fourth one-dayer due to fitness problems.
