No one in the Australian side is more desperate for a hit than Rogers,the left-handed opener  who had scored just 88 runs at an average of 22 on the disastrous tour against Pakistan. Australia convincingly lost the two match Test series 2-0, and the fact that Rogers wasnt able to give a solid start could just be the one reason for it. The timing of CA’s latest experiment for future day-night Tests couldn’t be worse for the under-pressure Aussie opener.Rogers, the colour-blind opener has no choice but to sit out Victoria’s clash with Tasmania in Hobart starting on Saturday because he cannot see the pink ball. Meanwhile Phil Hughes has been confirmed to open for South Australia against NSW on Saturday and could be on the verge of yet another Test comeback replacing Chris Rogers perhaps

“In some respects it’s probably nice to have a little bit of a break but then again it would be nice to get out there and play and score some runs,” Rogers said.“So that’s a bit disappointing because I can’t play. But that’s the way it’s, I understand what they’re trying to do, it just doesn’t help me I suppose.”

“I completely understand what they’re trying to do, just from my past experience it was a tough experience (with the pink ball) so that’s the way it is. I think there’s enough cricket and I have to do well to get selected so hopefully I will.”

Rogers had  made it clear earlier in June that he would never again play pink ball cricket, after a hopeless experience in England.

“I have always known I am colour blind,” Rogers said.“It’s something you have to adapt to as you go along, but there’s no pink-ball cricket for me, that’s for sure”

“Thankfully I’ll be long gone before day-night (Test) cricket comes along.”
