Allan Border warns of England fightback in Perth Test

Sydney: Former Australian captain Allan Border has warned of England fighting back in the third Ashes Test beginning Friday in Perth.

Border said that England has barely fired a shot in the opening two Tests, but they are capable of getting back in the contest, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Australia can clinch an unassailable 3-0 series lead when the third Test starts at the WACA Ground in Perth on Friday, the report added.

Border predicted that England might bring in Tim Bresnan for either of their two spinners, Graeme Swann or Monty Panesar, on a bouncy pitch, which traditionally suites fast bowlers.

England could even go for an all-pace attack if it includes lanky quicks Boyd Rankin or Chris Tremlett, he said.
