Australia’s Chris Rogers on Thursday scored 95–his seventh consecutive Test fifty— against arch-rivals England on the second day of Ashes in Cardiff.
However, he fell short of a well-deserved century since February 2014 which he scored it against South Africa at Port Elizabeth.
But despite this, he couldn’t stop the accolades coming his way after proving his consistency with yet another half-century.
Here’s how the micro-blogging site Twitter reacted to the elegant left-hander’s solid innings.

All you can ask for is consistency in a player & Chris Rogers delivers on that front, 7 fifty plus totals on the bounce. #Ashes2015

I will be first to admit that I wasn’t a fan of Rogers opening, but you can’t knock consistency. Something all players strive for. #Ashes

Nervous nineties, nevertheless #chrisrogers has been an operative opener for australia in tests in recent times.
