Pakistan v England T20I Series - 3rd T20I

England v Pakistan

England won by 5 runs

4.1

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, 1 run, down the track then flipped through square leg

4.2

Saeed Ajmal to Kieswetter, no run, down the leg side, clips the pad so escapes a wide call

4.3

Saeed Ajmal to Kieswetter, OUT, top catch! That was very well taken at long on. Kieswetter looked to have struck it cleanly but it didn't quite have the legs. Shoaib Malik ran around the boundary then took it sliding on his knees near the rope

C Kieswetter c Shoaib Malik b Saeed Ajmal 17 (21m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

4.4

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, no run, full at the stumps and worked to midwicket

4.5

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, FOUR, he shows Kieswetter how to do it, picks the gap perfectly wide of long-on and didn't try to hit it too hard

4.6

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, 1 run, aims to the leg side but gets a leading edge down the ground to long-off

England 34/1   Saeed Ajmal 1-0-6-1

12.1

Saeed Ajmal to Bairstow, no run, sharp offie first up nearly gets through the backing-away Bairstow...

12.2

Saeed Ajmal to Bairstow, OUT, this offie gets past the attempted cut and takes out off stump. So no young-gunning from Jonny Boy today, backing away once more, trying to cut and done by one that squirts under the bat and onto off stump

JM Bairstow b Saeed Ajmal 3 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

12.3

Saeed Ajmal to Buttler, no run, another offie, full and defended forward

12.4

Saeed Ajmal to Buttler, 1 run, soft hands and dropped down to third man on the front foot

12.5

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, 1 run, full on leg stump and flicked behind square on the leg side

12.6

Saeed Ajmal to Buttler, 1 run, outside off and pushed into the off side coming forward

England 75/4   Saeed Ajmal 2-0-9-2

15.1

Saeed Ajmal to Buttler, 1 run, off spinner into the legs and angled into the off side

15.2

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, no run, doosra that beats Pietersen outside off

15.3

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, 1 run, down the track and blocked to midwicket

15.4

Saeed Ajmal to Buttler, OUT, fired in full and quicker and Buttler tries to sweep and misses, struck low on the pad and given out leg before as Buttler falls over, another slightly ungainly ending for the young lad

JC Buttler lbw b Saeed Ajmal 7 (14m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

15.5

Saeed Ajmal to Patel, no run, full and tucked to midwicket

15.6

Saeed Ajmal to Patel, no run, back and edged back to the bowler

England 89/5   Saeed Ajmal 3-0-11-3

17.1

Saeed Ajmal to Patel, 2 runs, step away and cut in front of square, long chase for deep point who scrambles well to save two

17.2

Saeed Ajmal to Patel, SIX, down the ground and six! Fine strike, straight over the bowler's head, delightfully timed

17.3

Saeed Ajmal to Patel, FOUR, another slap attempted, this time an inside edge past the keeper and it races away to the fine leg fence

17.4

Saeed Ajmal to Patel, no run, full outside off, swung at giving himself a little room, missed

17.5

Saeed Ajmal to Patel, OUT, but gone this time coming down the track and swinging and missing, easy stumping that my mother could have completed, so even a gimmie for Akmal

SR Patel st †Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 16 (9m 10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 160.00

17.6

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, forward on off stump and blocked back to the bowler

England 109/6   Saeed Ajmal 4-0-23-4
