Top batsman Trott savours England role as all-rounder

ENGLAND’S disturbing injury toll in their interminable one-day series against Australia has thrust one of their Ashes heroes into a new and unexpected role.
 Jonathan Trott has made the England number three spot his own after scoring a century in a winning cause on his Ashes debut at the Oval in 2009.
 Unbeaten innings of 168 and 135 in the recent Ashes triumph confirmed Trott’s hunger for batting. Then, just to confirm his appetite was not sated, he scored his second one-day hundred to help his side to a 21-run victory at the Adelaide Oval.
It was England’s solitary win in a 6-1 series drubbing.
 Trott’s calm authority and his unrelenting concentration make him a batsman who can anchor the innings at the World Cup while his team-mates play their shots. – Reuters
