Rogers fears Test career will be over if doesn't perform in Adelaide Test

Sydney, Dec 2 : Australian opener Chris Rogers has said that he cannot afford more batting failures or his Test career will be over, paving way for Phil Hughes as a potential replacement.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Hughes has plundered a double-century and a century in recent Sheffield Shield games as he pushes his claims for an Ashes recall.

Rogers said that he realises more meagre returns such as the one and 16 he made in Australia's first Test triumph against England will curtail his Test career, the report said.

While most of his teammates rested after Australia's series-opening win, Rogers worked tirelessly in the nets to prepare for the second Test starting in Adelaide on Thursday, the report added.

Despite predictions of a docile Adelaide pitch for fast bowling, Rogers said that Australia would continue its plans of unsettling England with short-pitched bowling, according to the report.
