Jonathan Trott Biography

Ian Jonathan Leonard Trott is a South African-born England Test cricketer. A right-handed top order batsman and occasional medium-pace bowler, he plays for Warwickshire domestically and has also played in South Africa and New Zealand. As of August 2010, he has the highest List A average of any English cricketer with 46.16 and the highest Twenty20 average of any English batsmen with 37.83. In the drawn 1st Test of the 2010–11 Ashes at The Gabba, Trott scored 135 not out in England's second innings in an unbeaten second wicket partnership of 329 with Alastair Cook who recorded a Test Match record innings at The Gabba of 235 not out. Good performances for his county in 2008 and 2009, as well as a productive tour in 2008–09 with the England Lions, led to a call-up to the senior England Test squad in August 2009 for the fifth Ashes Test. His highest England score in a Test match is 226, made against Bangladesh at Lord's on 28 May 2010, and he took his first Test wicket in the same match. He was awarded Wisden Cricketer of the Year, England Cricketer of the Year and ICC Cricketer of the Year in 2011.
