Australian batsman David Warner showered praises on the 35-year-old Chris Rogers who scored his maiden Test century in the fourth Ashes Test against England and said that he enjoyed batting with the veteran.

”I said it to ‘Bucky’ [Rogers] at the drinks break … I actually enjoy batting with you because you don’t say anything,’’ Warner said, as reported by Sydney Morning Herald.

“He’s got such a structured game plan, he knows his game so well – he’s got 20,000 first-class runs and he just peeled off a 100 in the first innings – he’s just so basic in how he goes about his game.

“When we were out there and chasing, he just kept on saying ‘keep it simple’ and ‘back your game plan’. We didn’t really need to say much else out there.

“[Tim] Bresnan had four or five balls that [Rogers] played and missed at, and I could see Bresnan just fuming and uttering words under his mouth. I’m at the other end giggling because I know, playing against Bucky, it’s exactly what you do when you’re the fielding team as well.

“You’re like, ‘Is he ever going to nick one?’ But he doesn’t because he knows how to grind out big runs and that’s what he’s done at first-class level and now he’s doing it at Test level. It’s fantastic for our team.”
