Ashes 2013-14: Chris Rogers on the moon after his match-winning century

Chris Rogers said his match-winning century was the best knock of his career and that it didn’t get bigger than a boxing day Test match hundred.

 

Australia compounded further misery on England by beating them with an eight-wicket margin to win the fourth Ashes 2013-14 Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on December 29, 2013. The Aussies, who had already won the Ashes, have taken a 4-0 lead in the five-match series.

 

They chased down a 231-run target with ease in only 51.5 overs in their second innings. Chris Rogers starred in the run-chase as he scored 116 off 155 balls. He struck an astonishing 13 fours in his innings. Shane Watson was unbeaten on 83 off 90 balls. He hit 11 fours and also the winning runs.

 

The session started with Australia already at 143 for one on Day Four. Stuart Broad bowled the first over after lunch, Watson leaned forward to a full delivery and drove square on the off side for three runs. Broad then found the edge of Rogers’s bat and wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow dived to his left and dropped a very tough chance.

 

That was the third chance that went begging on Day Four. Broad bowled a length delivery outside off-stump and Rogers played a late cut and got a four towards third-man. Broad bowled a back of a length delivery and Watson opened the face of the bat got a four towards third-man. That brought the 100-run partnership between Rogers and Watson.
