Bats Right Hand






"Does everything his way no matter what it looks like"

There are some sportsmen for whom image is everything. Hair, clothes, watch, shoes, everything must be as manicured as the Lord's outfield, but where Jonathan Trott is concerned runs are the only thing that matters. Often ribbed by his team-mates for his sense of style or rather lack of it, Trott couldn't care less how he looks as long as it does the job and you can extend that to his batting. As England most effective and reliable No.3 batsman since Nasser Hussain, Trott is the linchpin around which the strokemakers can flourish. He has a huge passion for American sports and American Football in particular, while Tottenham Hotspur are his sporting love at home in England. He even beat the world's most expensive player, Gareth Bale, in a free kick shootout back in January. Up until the 2013 Ashes he averaged more than 50 in both Test and one day cricket, but his Test stats have taken a dip and that will be something he will want to work on far more than his sartorial elegance. He is also a die hard Coldplay fan.
