Chris Rogers: The colour blind Test centurion
At 35 years and 344 days, Chris Rogers became second oldest Australian to score a maiden Test century when he reached the three-figure mark at Chester-le-Street in the fourth Ashes Test against England on 10 August 2013.
The oldest Australian to score a maiden Test century is Arthur Richardson, who was 37 years and 353 days when he made 100 against England at Leeds in 1926.
Rogers has waited his turn and scored runs aplenty in domestic cricket to rejuvenate his Test career; but we bet you didn't know these things about the left-handed opening batsman.
