South Africa, eyeing a series-levelling victory in the second Test, need five more wickets as Pakistan reached tea at 274-5 on the fourth day in Dubai on Saturday.
South Africa got the prized wicket of Misbah-ul Haq on 88 after he frustrated them during a 197-run fifth wicket stand having resumed at 132-4.
At the break, Asad Shafiq was unbeaten on 114 and, with him, Adnan Akmal on one as Pakistan still need 144 to avoid an innings defeat.
South Africa had taken a big 418-run lead by scoring a mammoth 517 in their first innings in reply to Pakistan's 99 all out.
