It’s just about people doing their job, on England’s current form – Cricket News Update
England's prolific top-order batsman, Jonathan Trott, on Friday credited batsmen and bowlers for his team’s current winning run.
“Now we have five really good bowlers and the batsmen are scoring hundreds - we scored four in the series against in the UAE - and we've pretty much carried on against Australia. So it sounds simple, but it's really just about people doing their
jobs,” said the South Africa-born 31-year-old batsman when asked about the quick improvement in’s ODI form.
After losing their five-match away One Day International series against England side whitewashed
Pakistan 4-0 in January-February this year in the a 2-0 defeat in a three-match ODI series, with one game rained out, and are currently leading the five ODI series against traditional rivals Australia
Though the Poms have registered comprehensive wins over the mighty Aussies in the previous two encounters, Trott warned his side against complacency.
“I think we are going in the right direction - but you know, haven't lost the series yet: they could still come back,” cautioned the right-handed top order batsman from Cape Province.
Replying to a question about the new ball rule recently introduced in the fifty-over format of cricket, Trott said that his team was okay with the modification, and hoped it would help them during their crucial tour of India later this year.
“It will help us in the sub-continent, too. The ball will never be more than 25 overs old, so it will stay nice and hard and we'll have nice, quick outfields,” said the 31-year-old veteran of 48 ODIs and 31 Tests, who averages 51.22 in the five-day format
and above 48 in One day cricket.
The right-hander, who scored a half century against Australia at Lord’s last week, also lavished praise on the opening duo of Alastair Cook and for providing the side with an opening stand of 74 runs in the same match, which the hosts won by 15
The third-match at Birmingham was washed out due to rain, and the next match between England and Australia will be played at Chester-le-Street on Saturday.
