Pakistani Cricketrs put down five catches against England.


T20 world Cup 2010: Kevin Pietersen’s unbeaten 73 runs saw England to a 6 wicket win over defending champions Pakistan in the opening Super Eights match of the World Twenty20 at the Kensington Oval on 06 May 2010.
Pietersen, who put on 60 for the 3rd wicket with captain Paul Collingwood (16 runs), gave England a scare when he clipped his ankle with his bat on 16 and he was dropped on 34.
Pakistani Cricketrs put down five catches, with Saeed Ajmal dropping three, in an error strewn display.
In total, Pietersen faced 52 balls with 2 sixes and 8 fours as his side finished on 151 for four in reply to Pakistan’s 148/9.
England won with three balls to spare in a match their star batsman ended with a boundary, off Saeed Ajmal.
Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was left reflecting on his team’s mistakes.
England had a huge slice of luck early in their reply when in the 1st over of their innings Craig Kieswetter, on nought, struck Abdul Razzaq straight to mid on only for Ajmal, who appeared to have caught the ball, to drop it as he tried to throw it up in celebration.
Saeed Ajmal then gave left hander Michael Lumb, on 23, a reprieve, when he dropped another catch hit straight to him.
But the spinner did help end a first wicket stand of 44 when he had Lumb (25runs) stumped by Kamran Akmal.
Pietersen recovered from his injury to strike Razzaq for 2 fours in 3 balls and he was given a life on 34 when a drive off Saeed Ajmal was tipped over the boundary for Six by Fawad Alam.
Pietersen completed a 37 ball fifty with a straight six off leg spinner Afridi.
Earlier, Pakistan started well after being sent in but lost three wickets for 6 runs as they collapsed from 71 for one to 77 for four with the hard hitting Afridi run out first ball for nought.
Umar Akmal went on to make 30 runs before he was well caught on the boundary by Pietersen, running round from long on, off left arm quick Ryan Side bottom.

IF SAEED HAS DROPPED ONE CATCH THAN WHY AFRIDI DID NOT REPLACE THE FIELD
