David Warner walks out with Nathan Lyon following, ahead of Day 1 of the 4th Test to honour Phillip Hughes.
The Australian pays its respects to Hughes, who passed awy after being hit by a bounce at the SCG, the venue of the final Test between India and Australia.
Warner battled some early discomfort to play cracking shots on either side of the wicket.
Rogers looked solid and was the perfect partner for Warner, who looked to constantly attack the Indian bowling.
Rogers played some attacking shots as the Indian bowling was taken apart by the Aussies on a flat pitch.
Rogers played brilliantly in what was his last Test match at home, but fell five short of a hundred.
Warner was an extremely emotional man on Tuesday and he even kneeled down to kiss the spot where Hughes had collapsed after reaching 63 not out.
Warner looks towards the sky to honour his friend after smashing an emotionally-charged hundred.
Warner is clearly happy after hammering his 12th hundred and estabilishing himself as one of the best batsmen in world cricket.
