PERTH, Australia, Nov 8 (AFP): An unbeaten century from Western Australian opener Chris Rogers ensured New South Wales would have to bat again after the third day of the Sheffield Shield cricket match here Tuesday.
Starting its second innings 299 runs behind NSW's first innings of 475 for seven declared, Rogers went to stumps unbeaten on 155 as WA reached 355 for six at the close of play after being forced to follow on.
WA had an overall lead of 56 with four wickets in hand.
Resuming its first innings on 115 for five, Western Australia was dismissed for 176 and was sent back in.
In the other match in Adelaide between South Australia and Queensland, play was abandoned on the third day without a ball bowled because of a saturated ground.
