Openers Abid Ali and debutant Abdullah Shafique played out the second and third sessions comfortably in a good batting track to cut the deficit to 185 runs. Abid, who reached the 1,000-run mark in his 15th test, closed in on his fourth century, remaining unbeaten on 93 at stumps, owing to bad light. Shafique overcame a nervy start to finish the day on 52 not out.

“We are in a good position now and will try to take it session by session,” Ali said. “Our first target is to go past Bangladesh’s 330 and then we will try to take a big lead to give our bowlers an advantage.”

Earlier, Bangladesh were all out for 330 in their first innings.
