When the world was spinning around Chris Rogers

When Chris Rogers slumped on the ground in the second innings of the 2015 Ashes Test at Lord’s, his glazed look reminded television viewers of the unforgettable moment when Phil Hughes was struck on the head by a ball from Sean Abbott an injury that sadly snuffed a young life.

Rogers retired hurt and took no further part in the Test, which Australia won to come level-pegging in the series, but he is expected to play the third Test at Birmingham starting on July 29. But David Warner’s above quote in The Guardian is quite chilling as it emphatically shows things were messed up inside Rogers’s head.

Rogers had been struck in the helmet during his first innings of 173, causing a cut above his right ear and people wondered if his predicament that led to his head spinning was as a result of that injury. Recently, was been struck on the helmet during a net session in the West Indies and missed two Tests as a result. He was also struck on the helmet while fielding at short leg against India at Brisbane.
