Perth: Australia batsman George Bailey played down expectations that an Ashes-series clinching win in the third Test in Perth is a formality.
Australia leads the five-Test series 2-0 after convincing wins in Brisbane and Adelaide, thanks largely to the express bowling of left-arm paceman Mitchell Johnson. The fast and bouncy WACA pitch is expected to only heighten Johnson's impact. (Read: Mitchell Johnson can bowl faster, says Australia bowling coach)
However, Bailey said Australia couldn't afford to be complacent heading into the Test starting on Friday.
