Jonathan Trott not worried about his place in England XI – Cricket News Update
England’s talented top-order batsman,, has dismissed the notion that he is upset over his place in the side following a tough competition in the English One-Day batting line-up.
Trott has served in 35 One Day Internationals (ODIs) so far in his career. He holds an average of 51.48, which is the highest by any player in the present ODI squad.
Moreover, he batted beautifully in England’s tour match against Cricket Association XI, smashing a thrilling 74-run-knock off just 68 balls.
Yet, Trott’s place in the team for Friday’s first ODI against and Jonny Bairstow are likely to retain their positions in the team following excellent performances.
Despite the fact that whenever the Englishmen need to make a choice, his name comes as the possible fall guy, Trott is not frustrated, as he welcomes batting rivalries during the imminent series.
"It's not a case of looking over your shoulder. I don't think that's a very good mentality to have, worrying about your own place. Whichever XI is selected have to go out there with the full backing of each other and the guys off the field," said Trott who
recently scooped the ‘ICC Player of the Year’ award.
Bairstow hit a blistering innings of 104 in the tour game, while Bopara is also in a terrific touch after doing well in the previous England-India series.
On the other hand,, are also expected to be included in the side for the opening battle.
In such circumstances, Trott will have to face a tough rivalry, which he feels is a great thing for the team.
"You don't want to have a thing where people are worried and trying to look after their own places. You've got to go out there and play the attacking brand of cricket that is expected of you when you pull on the England shirt and helmet," added the 30-year-old
batsman who has scored three centuries so far in the ODI cricket.
