Australia will be high on confidence as they take on England in the third Test at Perth which could decide the fate of this five-match Ashes series. Australia already have a strong 2-0 lead.
Even though skipper Alastair Cook denied that the team is scared of Mitchell Johnson, but the left arm pacer will leave no stone unturned to have yet another go at the English side.
England and Australia have played 12 Tests at Perth. While they have manage to notch up one victory which was back in December 1978, the English side has lost eight matches and only three have ended in a draw. With a trampoline wicket on offer, and looking at the quality pace attack both teams posses, it is unlikely that the match is going to end in a draw.
Australia: Chris Rogers, David Warner, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (c), Steven Smith, George Bailey, Brad Haddin (wk), Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle, Ryan Harris, Nathan Lyon.
England: Michael Carberry, Alastair Cook (c), Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Tim Bresnan, Matt Prior (wk), Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, James Anderson.
