Perth (Australia) (AFP) - England made a double breakthrough on the opening morning of the third Ashes Test against Australia on Friday with Chris Rogers and Shane Watson both falling early. After a positive start, Australia hit their first hurdle when Rogers was run out by a direct hit from Jimmy Anderson for 11. It was an important scalp for England, with the ball barely beating the bat in the opening session and both David Warner and Shane Watson looking in excellent touch. Watson was then caught in the slips by Graeme Swann off the bowling off Stuart Broad for 18 to leave Australia on 52 for two.
