Could Chris Rogers be Australia's new Allan Border Empty Could Chris Rogers be Australia's new Allan Border

With the news that the left handed batsman Chris Rogers has finally been given another chance to play at a test level for Australia this summer, could he become the new Allan Border in Australia's test side, in terms of playing the role of a very solid batsman who has a very good defensive technique and doesn't look to risk giving his wicket away by playing loose, flamboyant attacking shots.

Seems Rogers might bat at 3. In that case, he's more likely to be Australia's next Bradman.

I am not too sure Rogers is going to make a world of difference to Australia's batting. But their batting has suffered big time in India, and none of the younger players made a real good case for themselves. Rogers has serious first class experience, and a mountain of runs at that level at a very healthy average. Besides, he has valuable experience in English conditions. All in all, a fair enough pick.
Don't think there is much point to questions of whether he's the next border or Ponting or Hussey.......

Well as Rogers does have a lot of experience of playing in English conditions, he could well offer to Australia what the likes of Jacques Kallis, Hasim Amla offered to the South African team last summer, and that is a solid batsman who has a good tight batting technique and can use this to effectively combat the menace and the swing served up by England's key premier pace bowler Jimmy Anderson. I fully believe that being able to deal effectively with Anderson's swing bowling is the main key/factor for any test side now that plays against England, as without Anderson's wicket taking England do tend to struggle to bowl sides out cheaply as was proven in England's recent test series in NZ, in which Anderson struggled to frequently take a lot of wickets meaning that the team itself had to rely on their other less potent and experienced bowlers (Finn, Broad, Panesar) to do the damage which at times throughout that NZ test series they just couldn't do.
