Chris ROGERS - Australia - Cricket Test Record for Australia.

These shots of Australia's opening batsman Chris Rogers were taken at Edbaston during

the 3rd. Ashes Test of 2015, where Chris's form (and that of Australia) went awol.

However, in the first two matches of the five game series Chris started with a 95 followed

by a 173 and a 49 n.o. After the 5th Test at The Oval Chris called time on his international

career, his 25 Tests - all bar his 2008 debut played in a two year spell from 2013-2015 -

yielding 2015 runs at a more than respectable average of 42.87.

First selected in 2008 he played just one Test in his native Australia and then plied his trade for many years in England.  In 2013 he was recalled to the Australia side for The 2013 Ashes Series and in his two innings at Trent Bridge, Nottingham scored 16 and 52. Whilst in England he played for Shropshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Wiltshire, Northampton and Middlesex.  He captained several of those County sides.
