Ashes watch: The selection of 35-year-old Chris Rogers for Australia's Ashes squad has been interpreted as both a sign of desperation on the tourists' part and a decision that reflects the wisdom of the selectors.

His form this English season, from an Australian point of view, looks reassuringly strong. He completed the 59th first-class hundred of his career against Surrey at Lord's yesterday as Middlesex made nonsense of their first-innings dismissal for 166. Rogers and opening partner Sam Robson each posted three-figure scores in an opening stand of 259.
