Rogers reaches century as Australia build big lead
Australia's batsman Chris Rogers celebrates scoring a century against England on the third day of the fifth Ashes cricket Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground on January 5, 2014
The veteran left-hander cut part-time offspinner Kevin Pietersen to the boundary rope for his third Test century -- all of them against England.
Rogers' hundred came off 143 balls with 14 fours, and he shared in a fifth-wicket partnership of 109 with George Bailey, who was dismissed shortly after first-hour drinks when he top-edged Stuart Broad to Scott Borthwick for 46.
Rogers scored 116 in the second innings of the fourth Test in Melbourne.
Bailey's dismissal left Australia 200-5, a lead of 371 runs.
