Just hours after Brad Haddin announced his retirement from the One-Day International circuit, another Australian batsman divulged his plans to call it quits.

Opening batsman Chris Rogers revealed that the upcoming Ashes fixture against England would be his last swansong, as he believes that the time is nearly up for him.

“I think to go out in the Ashes and in England where I’ve played a lot of cricket is pretty fitting,” Rogers told Fox Sports before confirming that he will be missing the Bangladesh tour that follows the Ashes.

“There’s a trip to Bangladesh (in October) so I don’t think I’ll make that one,” added Rogers, who will be turning 38 in August.

“I’m very happy and very fortunate to have this second go at it and I’ve loved every moment of it. But time calls on everyone and I think it’s nearly up for me.”

Representing Australia in 20 Test matches, Rogers piled up 1535 runs at an average of 39.35, besides scoring 627 runs in 43 Twenty20 Internationals throughout his career.

The Ashes – a prestigious encounter between Australia and England that comprises of 5 Test matches – is scheduled to kick-off from July 8 and will run across till August 24.
