Brian Lara's world record of 400 was also in sight, with the West Indies champion at the ground.
But captain Tim Paine made the tough call to prioritise the maximum chance of a result and bowling at twilight as more important, with wet weather forecast for later in the match.
Australia's bowlers then responded in kind, showing all the discipline Pakistan lacked to nick off Pakistan's top and middle order with the tourists requiring 293 runs to avoid a possible follow on.
Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins both had one scalp to go with Starc's 4-22.

Former Australian cricket captain Mark Taylor believes the tourists needed to capitalise on the old ball the same way Labuschagne and Warner did yesterday to stay alive, even though reality suggests their chances are remote.
"All Pakistan can do is try go out there and keep as many resources in the sheds for tomorrow," Taylor told WWOS.
"We've seen today how much easier batting can get when you've got an older ball at the start of the day. That's what Warner and Labuschagne did so well to get through that session last night, and the have the opportunity to really kick on.
"That's what Pakistan have to learn from what Australia did."
'It does detract from what they did': Taylor

Taylor said Pakistan's attack hasn't been as threatening as they would have liked but nonetheless Australia will take plenty of confidence out of the way their top order performed, especially without relying on another big score from Steve Smith.
"Pakistan's attack it's not a great attack, there's no doubt about that," he said.
"This is not the Test that NZ will give Australia. The Test matches later in the year will be of greater test. But at least Australia will go into those matches with a top order with far more confidence than the one that came home from England only a few months ago."
In perhaps the greatest sign of how often Pakistan failed to bowl full and straight, only 21 of Warner's runs came past mid-off and mid-on.
Legspinner Yasir Shah copped the most tap with figures of 0-197, while Muhammad Musa (0-114) and Mohammad Abbas (0-100) also reached three figures.
Teenager Shaheen Shah Afridi was the only bowler to have any joy, taking 3-88.
