Australia opener Chris Rogers has denied that the tourists were complacent heading into the third Test, following their demolition of England at Lord's.

"I don't think so," Rogers said when asked if Australia had become complacent.

"I think we respect England and particularly their attack," he said.

"A lot has been made of that second Test win and a lot was made of the first Test win. It's one game, one game at a time.

"As cricketers you know the momentum can change so quickly. So I don't think we got ahead of ourselves at all.

"I read a lot where people thought it was almost game over but there's no way you disrespect the opposition."

Rogers was the only Australian batsman to fire on day one, scoring 52, while no other Australian batsman scored over 16.

Australia will need early wickets on day two if they are any chance of winning the third Test.
