Pietersen leads England to win

CRICKET: England laboured to an unconvincing six-wicket win over Scotland in last night&rsquo;s World Twenty20 warm-up match at Trent Bridge.<br /><br />Test skipper Kevin Pietersen steered England to victory with an unbeaten 53 off 39 balls and slogging the match-winning six over mid-wicket.<br /><br />England&rsquo;s unfamiliar bowling attack, missing injury concerns James Anderson and Graeme Swann, largely failed to trouble Scotland, who posted 136-5 but were defeated with an over to spare.
