The English top order batsman, Jonathan Trott, has said that he is hitting the ball well and he will be back amongst the runs pretty soon.

Trott hasn’t been that impressive in the ongoing Ashes series so far. He has managed to score just 106 runs in the first two test matches at a modest average of 26.50. In a couple of innings, Trott hasn’t even managed to open his account. (more…)

The English top order batsman, Jonathan Trott, has hailed the captaincy style of Alastair Cook and has said that the players are extremely comfortable under him.

Cook has had a fantastic beginning as captain. England is yet to lose a test series under his captaincy.

Talking to the reporters about Cook’s captaincy, Trott said, “He is a fine leader who is well respected in the dressing room. He makes everybody in the camp feel comfortable.”

“He has started brilliantly as captain. The way he led the team in India was incredible. He is someone who always leads from the front.”

“The other good thing about Alastair is that he always listens to the other players. He always looks for advices.”

After the retirement of Andrew Strauss, it’s Trott who has been standing at first slip to the spin bowlers. When asked how it is like fielding at that position, Trott said, “It’s not easy to field in the slip cordon. You need to be on your toes all the time. But, I am enjoying that role.”

“Standing at that position, I am expected to help the skipper as far as using the DRS is concerned as I am in a good position to judge the line of the delivery, nicks and all that.”

“I was the one who had asked Alastair to go for the review against Phil Hughes in the first test match. I told him that it was pitching in line and he went for it. I think I should be given credit for that wicket.”

Trott has been dismissed for duck a couple of times in the ongoing Ashes series. When asked about that, Trott said, “I felt a bit disappointed about it, but, I can’t change it now. All I can do is to move on and look forward to the next test match and that’s what I am doing.”

The top order batsman of the England cricket team, Jonathan Trott, would not be able to play cricket for the next three or four weeks due to the finger injury. Trott was hit on his hand while trying to play a quick short of a length delivery from Dale Steyn in the fourth ODI at Lord’s. Due to the injury, he wasn’t able to play in the fifth ODI against South Africa at Trent Bridge.

Earlier, the coach of Andy Flower had said that Trott’s finger hadn’t fractured. But, the medical reports have confirmed that Trott’s finger has been broken and he would not be able to bat for quite a few days. However, Trott is supposed to get fit before the test series against India in November.

Trott is a key member of the England ODI side. His performance was up to the mark in the recently played ODI series against South Africa. He scored 142 runs in 4 matches that he played at an average of 47.33. He built a match winning 100-run partnership with Ian Bell for the second wicket in the 4th ODI.

The England team missed him a lot in the fifth ODI. Bopara who batted at no. 3 in the absence of Trott in the fifth ODI didn’t manage to open his account and got out on duck after facing just two deliveries. After the fifth ODI, the English skipper, Alistair Cook had admitted that Trott’s presence in the team might have made a difference.

Trott’s injury is a huge blow for his county Warwickshire. Trott was expected to play for Warwickshire in the Clydesdale Bank 40 final against Hampshire. But, now, he would not be able to serve his county in that all important final which is going to be played on 15th of September.
