    ENGLAND HAD A NASTY JOLT WHEN THE THIRD TEST AGAINST PAKISTAN OPENED AT HEADINGLEY, LEEDS, U.K., JULY 5. PUT INTO BAT, ENGLAND LOST SIX VALUABLE WICKETS FOR ONLY 194. MIKE STEWART PROVED THE MAINSTAY OF THE HOMESIDE'S BATTING, SCORING AN IMPRESSIVE 86.

    RAIN, WHICH INTERRUPTED PLAY FOR OVER AN HOUR AT NOON, GAVE PAKISTAN THEIR BEST START OF THE SERIES, THE BALL MOVED SHARPLY OFF THE DAMPENED PITCH AND ENGLAND WAS SOON IN TROUBLE. COWDREY WAS CAUGHT OFF MAHMOOD FOR ONLY SEVEN, AND THE PAKISTANI BOWLERS HAD ENGLAND STRUGGLING FOR RUNS.

    AT LUNCH, ENGLAND HAD SCORED A LABORIOUS 39 FOR 1 WICKET. LATER, STEWART MOVED ALONG THE SCORE, HELPED BY DEXTER, (20, GRAVENEY (37), AND PARFITT (31) NOT OUT). STEWART FINALLY FELL L.B.W. TO MEDIUM-PACER MUNIR, PLAYING HIS FIRST TEST. IN THE SAME OVER, MUNIR CAUGHT TITMUS OFF HIS OWN BOWLING.

    AT STUMPS, ENGLAND HAD SCORED AN UNIMPRESSIVE 194/6, AND PAKISTAN, WITH ATTACKING BOWLING ON A HELPFUL WICKET, HAD A FIRM GRIP ON THE MATCH.
