Chris Rogers confirms he will quit after Ashes

LONDON, August 18: Australian opening batsman Chris Rogers confirmed on Tuesday that he will retire from Test cricket at the end of the current Ashes series in England.
"I think it is time, I have had an amazing couple of years playing for Australia and enjoyed it and been part of some pretty special things but everything comes to an end and I have been pretty lucky," he told reporters in London.
"You are never 100 per cent sure but I felt like this was the last one, there's been a few things, particularly the head issues lately, I am quite happy to call it a day.
"People tell me you know when you know and I felt like this is the right time."
He made 173 in the first innings of the second Test at Lord's, but retired hurt in the second innings, complaining of dizziness after being hit in the head earlier in the match.
"It's pretty special, someone said to me not many people go out when they're scoring runs or taking wickets, it's generally not how it happens, so that's something to be proud of as well," he said.
"It would've been perfect to have won this series but it's not to be, England has been deserving winners and we've been outplayed.
"I think I can be proud I've played quite well and stood up, and made a little bit of a difference." Agencies
