David Warner has revealed Chris Rogers saw the grandstand at Lord's moving when he was overcome by dizziness in the second Ashes Test.

Veteran opener Rogers was forced to retire ill on Sunday having made 49 in Australia's second innings.

Australia remain hopeful the 37-year-old will be available to feature in the third Test at Edgbaston next week, linking his dizzy spell to a "delayed ear problem" after he was hit on the head by a James Anderson bouncer two days earlier.

Rogers went for a further scan on Wednesday, by which time Warner had provided details of his opening partner's troubles.

"He actually said to me 'The grandstand is moving', and I said 'No it's not'," Warner is quoted as saying on Cricket Australia's official website.

"I was worried, I had no idea what was going on, and so was he.

"He said 'I don't know what's happening here', so I said 'Just sit down'."

During the second Test, reports suggested there was a frosty relationship between Rogers and Warner, a theory the latter has rubbished.

"I came down the wicket and I had to look twice because I didn"t really know what was going on and with all the talk of him and me not getting along I thought it was just him not wanting to come and talk to me," joked Warner.

"He keeps me in check and I keep him in check as well. I think he's helped me a lot, especially at the other end.

"Being patient is one thing, but actually being reassured like that from the other end - for your partner to notify you about that - is another thing.

"I've loved opening the batting with him and I think his knowledge and experience of the game brings a lot to the table, especially when I'm out there with him."
