Sri Lanka was reeling at 43-4 in its second innings at lunch on day three of the second test against Australia, requiring another 261 runs to avoid a humilating innings defeat.
Australia's first innings ended quickly Friday morning on 460, with Mitchell Johnson stranded on 92 not out.
Johnson then made two dismissals in the first over of Sri Lanka's innings, running out Dimuth Karunaratne for 1 on just the third ball, and next delivery having Tillakaratne Dilshan caught at short leg by Ed Cowan for a duck.
Debutant paceman Jackson Bird bowled Mahela Jayawardene (0) in the next over before trapping Thilan Samaraweera for 1.
Kumar Sangakkara was 22 not out at the break with Angelo Mathews on 17.
