Australian opening batsman Chris Rogers, who retired hurt after experiencing a dizzy spell in the second innings of the second Ashes Test at Lord's, is improving, according to team doctor Peter Brukner.
England women's team have a chance to dislodge Australia from the pole-position in the International Cricket Council Women’s Championship, if they manage to secure a 3-0 victory in the One-Day International leg of the upcoming tournament.
Mitchell Johnson revoked old form and memories as Australia demolished England bowling them out in 37 overs after setting them a massive target of 509 in the fourth innings, eventually winning the second Test at Lord’s by 405 runs to level the series 1-1.
Steven Smith and Chris Rogers cracked fine centuries and added an unbeaten 259 for the second wicket as Australia made 337 runs for one at stumps on day one of the second Ashes Test against England at Lord’s.
England's performance in Cardiff last week suggested a similar type of reaction to their 5-0 defeat in the last Ashes but they will be wary of an Australian fightback when the second Test gets underway at Lord's on 16th July.
