Chester-Le-Street, Aug 10: Chris Rogers rode his luck before reaching a hard-earned maiden test century as Australia stayed in control of the fourth Ashes test on Saturday, despite a swing-bowling masterclass from Stuart Broad on day two.



Bad light brought an early end to an attritional day's play at Chester-le-Street, but not before Rogers had progressed to 101 not out and Australia had moved to 222-5 -- just 16 runs behind England's first-innings total.

Broad delivered a devastating display of pace bowling in overcast conditions, ripping through the top order to claim figures of 4-48.

But try as he might, he couldn't snare Rogers—despite another controversial DRS call on 20 and a dropped catch by Graeme Swann on 49.

England is 2-0 ahead in the series and has retained the Ashes. Australia can still draw the series 2-2.
