 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.
