The home team was cruising comfortably at 233 for two at one stage before the hosts bounced back by evicting Inzamam (77) and Hameed (91) in quick succession just a few minutes before tea to keep their hopes alive of enforcing the follow-on.
The visitors claimed the important wicket of the Pakistani captain Inzamam with the experienced Anil Kumble providing the breakthrough. The young paceman Irfan Pathan then claimed his second wicket by accounting for the well-set Hameed. This was Pathan's 100th first class wicket.
Yousuf Youhana was batting on three and Abdul Razzak was on eight at the tea break with Pakistan still needing 224 runs to avoid the follow-on.
