Australia batsman Steve Smith says England bowled too short after his 103 not out put the hosts in control on the first day of third Ashes Test in Perth.
Australia had been 143-5 just after lunch but a sixth-wicket partnership of 124 between Smith and Brad Haddin (55) took them to safety before late hitting from Mitchell Johnson took the score to 326-6 at the close.
Smith says Australia will aim to bowl "a yard fuller" to create chances when England bat.
