Sri Lanka's bowling coach Champaka Ramanayake talks about his team's bowling attack ahead of the third day's play of the third Test between Australia and Sri Lanka at Sydney.

Australia made hard work of grabbing a narrow lead over tenacious Sri Lanka on the second day tarnished by reckless run outs and rash shot-making in the third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

The home side, with the series already clinched after wins in Hobart and Melbourne, edged Friday to a 48-run lead over the tourists.

But it proved tough going and the Australians failed to get away to a bigger lead after a run-a-minute start.
At the close, Australia were 342 for six with Matthew Wade on 47 and Peter Siddle not out 16.
