- Silva returns to form with century
- Sri Lanka lead by 288 runs
Kusal Perera (24) fell to Jon Holland while Mitchell Starc dismissed Kusal Mendis (18) leg before to claim his 24th wicket in an otherwise spinner-dominated series.
Mathews fell to Lyon (4-123) in the second session but Silva added 90 runs with Chandimal (43) for the sixth wicket to consolidate Sri Lanka's position.
Holland ended Silva's 269-ball stay with Steve Smith taking the catch in slip as the batsman walked out to a standing ovation.
