Chris Rogers believes that 400 runs in the first innings could be enough for Australia to win the second Test against England.

Australia batsman Chris Rogers believes that 400 runs in the first innings of the second Ashes Test against England would be a "good score".

The hosts finished day one in Adelaide on 273-5, having been 155-1 at one stage.

"It has been an interesting one," he told Sky Sports News. "At 155-1 we were thinking 400, 500 was on the cards but then a few tricks started happening and they got a few wickets so we then thought maybe 300.

"We have got a good tail, though, so hopefully we can push on and I think 400 would be a good score."

Australia won the first Ashes Test in Brisbane last month.
