Australia opening batsman Chris Rogers has revealed that he will consider retiring from international cricket following the conclusion of the 2015 Ashes series in England.

Rogers’ comments come just a short while after he was named as one of Wisden’s Cricketers of the Year.

“In an ideal world it would be nice to finish with the Ashes here next year, see out the season and then think about whether it’s time to call it a day then,” Rogers told The Sunday Times. “But who knows? You’re a long time retired and I love what I do, so it will be hard to say it’s all over.”

Meanwhile, Rogers also noted that he expects his Middlesex team-mate Sam Robson to be part of the England’s 2015 Ashes side.

“He’s going to be a very good international player. He’s got a good head on his shoulders. He’s saying all the right things and his first focus is still Middlesex,” Rogers said. “I don’t particularly think he’s an opener. He plays spin well and he’s probably better suited to the middle order.”
