Cricket: Chris Rogers boosts Australia amid DRS drama in 3rd Ashes Test against England
MANCHESTER (REUTERS) - Australia opener Chris Rogers struck an unbeaten 67 on the first morning of the third Ashes Test against England at Old Trafford on Thursday following another controversial umpiring decision against his team.
The Australians went to lunch at 92 for two after Usman Khawaja fell for one when he was adjudged to have been caught behind off Graeme Swann.
The batsman reviewed the decision but the third umpire sided with his on-field colleague despite replays showing no obvious edge in the latest decision review system dispute to afflict the series and Australia.
Shane Watson earlier got away with several loose shots through the slips, over gully and just short of point but was finally caught at slip by Alastair Cook off paceman Tim Bresnan for 19.
