Asad Shafiq hit a brilliant 100 not out to guide Pakistan to within 108 runs of an unlikely world record chase of 490.
Starting at 70-2, Pakistan were 382-8 after a fighting batting performance with Azhar (71) and Younis (65) battling hard in the first session. Australia requested the extra half an hour late in the evening but still need two more wickets on the final day to win.
Pakistan 142 and 8 for 382 (Shafiq 100*, Azhar 71, Younis 65) need 108 runs to beat Australia 429 and 5 for 202 dec.
