  • Description

    THE THIRD DAY OF THE ENGLAND V PAKISTAN TEST MATCH AT LORD'S OPENED JUNE 23, WITH PAKISTAN HAVING LOST FOUR WICKETS FOR 103, NEEDING 270 IN THEIR SECOND INNINGS TO AVOID AN INNINGS DEFEAT. THE SCORE AT THE END OF THE SECOND DAY: PAKISTAN 100 AND 103-4; ENGLAND 370.

    MOST COMMENTATORS WERE UNANIMOUS BEFORE THE START OF PLAY THAT THE MATCH WAS OVER FOR PAKISTAN, THAT THEIR BATSMEN WOULD CRUMBLE BEFORE LUNCH. BUT FEW APPRECIATED THE TENACITY OF JAVED BURKI AND NASIM-UL-GHANI. IN A SPLENDID PARTNERSHIP THE TWO MEN DEFIED THE HOSTILE BUT ACCURATE ENGLISH BOWLING TO KNOCK UP A COMBINED 163 RUNS BEFORE LUNCH. WITH SQUARE CUTS AND COVER DRIVES, BURKI SLAMMED TRUEMAN AND ALLEN TO THE BOUNDARY FOR FOUR ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS AND NASIM HIT LOCK OVER THE BOUNDARY FOR SIX.

    THE TWO MEN RECEIVED A STANDING OVATION FROM THE CROWD AS THEY LEFT THE GROUND FOR LUNCH. BURKI WAS 75, NASIM, 83, AND PAKISTAN NEEDED ONLY 30 MORE RUNS TO PUT IN ENGLAND IN AGAIN FOR A SECOND INNINGS. SCORE: PAKISTAN, 240 RUNS FOR THE LOSS OF 4 WICKETS. AT LUNCHTIME.
