Perth: Talented 24-year-old left-hander Chris Rogers completed a second century in the same match for Western Australia (WA) on Saturday as his side drew with South Australia (SA) in the last Sheffield Shield qualifying match of the summer.

Rogers, son of former New South Wales (NSW) batsman and selector John Rogers, followed his unbeaten 101 in the first innings with 102 not out in the second at the WACA Ground. But his wonderful double was not enough to guide his team to victory on a batsman- friendly pitch. Skipper Simon Katich closed his side's second innings at 276 for five, leaving South Australia to make 322 for victory. With former Test batsman Greg Blewett making an unbeaten 112, South Australia finished with 277 for eight - 55 runs short of its target. Veteran fast bowler Jo Angel snapped up four for 49, moving to second place on the ladder of leading Sheffield Shield wicket-takers with 387 victims. The list is headed by former Victorian and South Australian spinner Clarrie Grimett, who had a remarkable 513 scalps.
