Video - Rogers, Broad Comment On Day Two

Australia's centurion Chris Rogers and England's fast bowler Stuart Broad talk to the media following day two of the fourth Ashes Test at Chester-le-Street.

Rogers survived some testing spells early in his innings and had some good fortune when decisions went against England, but he took advantage to close unbeaten on 101.

Broad, meanwhile, took four for 48 as Australia closed on 222 for eight in reply to England's score of 238.

Talking about reaching his century, Rogers said: "I got the score in the last game, and thought that was maybe that was my opportunity and then, you know, just got to 90s and the England boys were saying 'if you don't get it now, you may never', so, it was just a fantastic moment to finally get it.

"After all this time, you know, you're fully aware of how much it means. To get a hundred playing for your country is just a magnificent moment. Just so happy and so relieved I got it."

Broad paid tribute to Rogers, adding: "You have to give a lot of credit to Buck (Chris Rogers) with the way he dug it out.

"He realised the wicket is not made for flashy stroke-play. It's a real grinding wicket and you accumulate your runs.

"It's certainly the best wicket to bowl seam on we've had this Ashes series, there's no doubt about that."
