The last-ball dismissal of Moin Khan, bowled after the ball sneaked between his legs to dislodge his stumps, was what put the home team in a truly precarious position. Moin was castled by Sachin Tendulkar, who could scarcely conceal his glee. With Saqlain Mushtaq, Mohammad Sami, Shoaib Akhtar and Shabbir Ahmed being the men to follow, India must now be fancying their chances of forcing a result.

The hosts troubles began when they lost both their openers within the first hour. Taufeeq Umer made 23 off 79 balls before Irfan Pathan snared him with a delivery that pitched in line with the off-stump and moved away. It was the final delivery of Pathan`s fourth over of the day.

Imran Farhat joined his partner in the pavilion just 26 balls later. He made 38 off 83 balls before Laxmipathy Balaji, who replaced Zaheer Khan, trapped him leg-before with his second delivery of the day. Pakistan were 73-2 and the pressure was suddenly on skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq, who walked out next.

Inzamam, who has scored centuries in each of his previous two Tests at his hometown, advertised his arrival with a four to the mid-wicket fence. He went on to hit a superb 77 before he was given out caught off bat and pad by Australian umpire Simon Taufel, even as television replays showed the ball make contact only with the pad. Inzy`s dismissal off Anil Kumble ended a defiant stand of 160 for the third wicket between him and Yasir Hamid after Pakistan had been reduced to 73-2 in the morning session.

Hamid, who scored a century in each innings on his debut against Bangladesh last August, struck 14 fours on his way to 91. He was dismissed edging Irfan Pathan to wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel, which gave the young left-arm seamer his 100th first-class wicket.

Yousuf Youhana, in the centre of a brewing controversy after newspaper reports indicated that he was the man who had ordered the Multan wicket to be shorn of grass, was among the Pakistan batsmen who failed to capitalise. He got a start, making 35 off 75 balls with five fours, before being caught down leg by Parthiv Patel off Zaheer Khan.

Pakistan, needing 476 to avoid the follow-on, were in some strife at 364-6 at the end of the third day. Their hopes now rest almost entirely on Abdul Razzaq, who played responsibly to reach a no-nonsense 47 off 108 balls. The Pakistan all-rounder, who has three hundreds to his name, will now be looking to add a fourth. The bigger the innings, the better for his side. His early dismissal on the other hand would put India well on course for their first win in a Test on Pakistani soil.
