KARACHI, Oct 4 (Reuters) Pakistan's Younis Khan and Faisal Iqbal shared a big stand to hold up South Africa's push for victory in the first test after Jacques Kallis hit his second century of the match on the fourth day today.

Younis (93 not out) and Faisal (44) put on 114 for the third wicket after Pakistan lost their openers quickly but left-arm spinner Paul Harris struck before the close to leave Pakistan on 146 for three, still needing 278 more runs for victory.

South Africa had declared before tea to set the hosts a target of 424.

Harris had Faisal caught by Kallis at slip with a sharp turning delivery.

Younis was in a punishing mood, racing to 93 from 99 balls with 14 fours and a six.

He and Faisal mixed caution with several glorious strokes after paceman Dale Steyn had removed Mohammad Hafeez (1) and Salman Butt (3).

Kallis, who scored 155 in the first innings, struck an unbeaten 100 in the second as South Africa declared on 264 for seven.
