Pakistan Need 130 Runs to Win

England 129/6 (20.0/20 ov)
Pakistan Need 130 Runs to Win
With 10 wickets and RR 6.48
Ajmal puts Pakistan in control
Pietersen Six on last ball

England will bat first in the Twenty20 decider in Abu Dhabi as they aim to end the tour of UAE with another piece of silverware. Both sides have named unchanged elevens, although there was more confidence behind Stuart Broad's words at the toss than Misbah-ul-Haq's.
It is the first time that Pakistan have not changed their team during this six-week head-to-head while England have played the same side during this Twenty20 series.
The surface at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium was starting cracked and Broad was happy to be able to put the runs on the board and then pressurise Pakistan's brittle top order. Hammad Azam, the allrounder, made an impact on the second match and kept the team's hopes briefly alive. They need a similar, fearless, approach to push England today.
Pakistan 1 Mohammad Hafeez, 2 Awais Zia, 3 Asad Shafiq, 4 Umar Akmal (wk), 5 Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), 6 Shoaib Malik, 7 Shahid Afridi, 8 Hammad Azam, 9 Umar Gul, 10 Saeed Ajmal, 11 Aizaz Cheema
England 1 Kevin Pietersen, 2 Craig Kieswetter (wk), 3 Ravi Bopara, 4 Eoin Morgan, 5 Jonny Bairstow, 6 Jos Buttler, 7 Samit Patel, 8 Stuart Broad (capt), 9 Graeme Swann, 10 Jade Dernbach, 11 Steven Finn
