Tillakaratne Dilshan and Angelo Mathews did their best to drag Sri lanka back into the Test on the third day but a relentless Peter Siddle ensured Australia remained well on top.

Sri lankans were bowled out for 336 runs and Thilakarathne Dilshan top scored with 147 runs while Mathews scored 75.

Again the weather in Hobart was fickle, leading to all sorts of session adjustments, and by the time a late stumps time arrived Australia's advantage had grown to 141, leaving them to set Sri Lanka a target over the next two days.

David Warner and Ed Cowan had reached stumps safely, Cowan on 16 and Warner on 8, and Australia were 27 runs for no loss.
