An inspection was planned for 1:40 p.m. local time (1240 GMT), with lots of standing water on the ground after early-morning rain.
Pakistan are 100/2 in their second innings, trailing England overall by 210 runs. England lead 1-0 and are on the brink of clinching a first series win over Pakistan in 10 years.
The latest delay in this weather-affected Test meant England paceman James Anderson will have to wait to reach 600 career wickets in the format.
He is on 599, with only retired spinners Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Shane Warne (708) and Anil Kumble (619) above Anderson on the all-time list of wicket-takers in test cricket.
