So here ends England's first full tour of the UAE. A tour that has produced some fascinating cricket and some real stories. Plenty to feel good about and to think about for both teams. Where from here? Well Pakistan are next in action in the Asia Cup, which begins on March 11. England also have little break, flying out to Sri Lanka in two week's time ahead of their two-Test series. That's when I'll be back to describe the action so be good between now and then. But make sure you stay with the team for full coverage of all the major matches here on ESPNcricinfo.com.

This is the lowest total that England have ever defended in T20s. An absolutely outstanding effort with the ball and their fielding, apart from the one miss from Bairstow (who later redeemed himself to run out Afridi) was fantastic. Those three last overs from Dernbach and Broad were a perfect example of how to bowl at the death. They backed their skills and executed them perfectly.

A low-scoring thriller to end the tour. Kevin Pietersen, who is man of the match and man of the series, battled away in difficult conditions to set up some kind of score and the bowlers and fielders did the rest.

A great comeback from England since the hammering in the Test series, they dominated the ODI series and have now won the T20 series 2-1 and can take a great deal out of this tour, especially in a year where they will defend their World T20 title in September.
