Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : July 17th 2015 Contents England bowled well in the afternoon session, and
restricted Rogers and Smith to 87 runs in 30 overs,
but could not dislodge them.
Australia accelerated as the bowlers tired. Smith
sent the august members in the Lord s pavilion scat-
tering with a sweetly struck straight six. He pipped
Rogers to the century, reaching his in 161 balls and
nine fours. A few minutes later, Rogers celebrated his
fifth Test century, reaching his in 209 balls in an
innings that included 17 fours.

LONDON---Australia roared back into Ashes con-
tention with a powerful batting performance on
the first day of the second Test yesterday.
Opener Chris Rogers and Steve Smith scored fluent
centuries as Australia closed on 337-1.
It s the first time in 22 years that England has
taken only one wicket in a day in a Test. At the close,
Rogers had a Test-best 158 not out, and Smith was
unbeaten on 129.
After the 169-run defeat in Cardiff last week, Aus-
tralia s performance yesterday was the perfect
response to captain Michael Clarke s pre-match
appeal for his team to show confidence and aggres-
England took the only wicket on 78 in the first
session, when David Warner had a rush of blood
after hitting spinner Moeen Ali for two boundaries.
He attempted a lofted drive from the last ball of Ali s
first over, and skied the ball to James Anderson at
deep mid-off for 38.
Rogers and Smith offered half-chances to England
but they were not taken. Ian Bell, in particular, should
have caught Smith at second slip on 51, but he could
not hold on to the low chance.
"I ve scored centuries at the MCG (Melbourne
Cricket Ground) and the SCG (Sydney Cricket
Ground, so getting one at Lord s is the trifecta for
me," a jubilant Rogers said.
Occasionally troubled by England s pace bowling,
the two exploited numerous loose balls. Smith scored
13 fours while Rogers, who reached his century a few
minutes after Smith in the final session, hit 25 bound-
Rogers, at 37, is retiring from international cricket
at the end of the five-match Ashes series. He has
had a sporadic career, playing once in 2007 and not
being selected again for another six years when he
was recalled at 35, when he was top-scorer in back-
to-back Ashes series.
Rogers refused to confirm he would stick to his
decision to retire.
"It s hard to say," he said. "People have criticised
me for saying it, so all I want to do now is focus on
The former captain of Middlesex, whose home
ground is Lord s, said his knowledge of the north
London ground was useful.
"The late cuts work really well here, and you don t
have to hit the ball hard," he said. "It just glides away
to the boundary."
The left-hander flashed at the third ball of the
day and was lucky to see the edge fly just over Eng-
land s slip cordon. After that, he offered little to Eng-
"That s where this game of cricket is so stupid,"
Rogers said. "I could have been out for a duck and,
instead, I m sitting here with 150 not out."
At lunch, Australia scored 104 after winning the
toss. Unlike Cardiff, the Lord s pitch held few demons
and there was little swing for England s bowlers to
make use of.
