“I want to be here the whole series and score runs”
Australia opening batsman Chris Rogers has admitted that he “didn’t contribute in the first game as much as I’d like to” and added that he is determined to make amends by scoring some runs in the second Test in Adelaide.
During the first Test in Brisbane, Rogers was only able to score one and 16 before being dismissed by England pace bowler Stuart Broad in both innings.
“I didn’t contribute in the first game as much as I’d like to, so it would be nice to get some runs in this game, for sure,” Rogers said. “You always feel pressure but you have just got to enjoy it as well.
“I want to be here the whole series and score runs. That is my job, so I probably can’t afford too many failures.”
In order to prepare himself for the second Test, Rogers has been spending extra time in the nets and correcting the flaws in his technique.
“I have probably hit the ball a bit better,” Rogers said. “But I was able to do some good work this week and iron out a few flaws. Hopefully I can contribute this week.”
