Ian Jonathan Leonard Trott (born 22 April 1981) is a South African-born England Test cricketer. Domestically, he plays for Warwickshire, and he has also played in South Africa and New Zealand. He was ICC and ECB Cricketer of the Year in 2011[2]

A right-handed top order batsman and occasional medium-pace bowler, he played two Twenty20 Internationals for England in 2007. 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. He scored a century in that Test, becoming the 18th England player to do so on his Test debut. 18 months later, he scored another century at the MCG to set up the victory which saw England retain the Ashes. 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.

Contents

Personal and family life

His half-brother, Kenny Jackson, represented the Netherlands and Western Province.[3] Trott was born in Cape Town to a South African family of English descent. Educated at Rondebosch Boys' High School and Stellenbosch University, he played for South Africa at both under-15 and under-19 level.[3]

In April 2009 he married Warwickshire's press officer Abi Dollery, grand-daughter of former Warwickshire captain Tom Dollery. Their daughter, Lily, was born in October 2010.

Cricket

Warwickshire

As he holds a British passport, Trott was not considered an overseas player in County cricket. On his Warwickshire second-XI debut in 2002, he compiled a record score of 245;[3] the following year he scored 134 on County Championship debut for Warwickshire,[4] and in the same season claimed a haul of 7 for 39 with his occasional seam bowling,[5] his maiden first-class five-wicket haul.

Trott hit four first class centuries for Warwickshire during the 2005 season, bettering his previous career best to 152 against Glamorgan before taking it to 210 against Sussex three weeks later. His 1,161 first class runs of 2005 was the second-highest tally of the Warwickshire season, only behind Nick Knight.[6] Before his first international Test call-up, Trott had hit 8,121 first class runs at an average of just under 44.

He has also found success in one-day cricket. As of August 2010, he has the highest List A average of any English cricketer with 46.16[7] and the highest Twenty20 average of any English batsmen with 37.83.[8]

International

Twenty20 International debut

Trott's maiden Test century

Although he played for South Africa at U19 level, Trott is eligible to play for England as a result of his grandparents being English. Following a good season in 2007 he was selected in June 2007 for England's one day squad for the series against the West Indies. He was given the nickname Leon, after Marxist theorist Leon Trotsky by the England team.[1] Trott shook off a hand injury and played in both Twenty20 Internationals against the West Indies but failed to contribute in double figures and the series ended 1–1.[9]

2009 Ashes

On 4 August 2009, during a strong county season for Warwickshire during which he was averaging over 97, it was announced that Trott would be included in the 14 man Ashes squad, to play against Australia in the fourth Test at Headingley. Trott did not feature in that match, but was then named in the team for the decisive Ashes Test at the Oval and made his debut.[10][11] Trott batted solidly during the first innings, scoring 41 runs before being run out by Simon Katich.[12] He scored 119 in the second innings, becoming the 18th England player to score a hundred on debut, the first to do so against Australia since Graham Thorpe in 1993, and the highest scoring Warwickshire batsman on Test debut.[13] England went on to win the Test, and the Ashes series.[14] After that Test Series, Tottenham Hotspur, the football team he supported when he was a boy, gave him a signed shirt by Harry Redknapp to congratulate him on winning the Ashes and a Test century.[15]

Trott was then selected to play in the rain-affected two-match Twenty20 International matches, although the weather prevented him from playing any more than a scoreless four deliveries.[16] He was not selected for the ODI series, returning to Warwickshire to score 93 against Worcestershire,[17] though on 11 September it was announced that he had been awarded an "incremental contract" with England.[18]

England in South Africa, 2009/10

Trott earned selection for the tour to South Africa that winter,[19] thanks to his Ashes efforts and his batting form which helped Warwickshire to the Second Division 2009 Pro40 title.[20] However, on the eve of the tour former captain Michael Vaughan announced in his biography his disappointment in seeing Trott celebrating with the South African cricket team after their victory over England the previous year.[21] Trott rejected the claims, and was supported by captain Andrew Strauss. Both were disappointed by Vaughan's comments.[22]

In the second One Day International in South Africa at Centurion Park, Trott was promoted to open the innings alongside Strauss and he responded by producing an innings of 87, that along with a century from Paul Collingwood, with whom he shared a substantial partnership, helped England win the game.

Bangladesh home and away, 2010

Trott then toured Bangladesh in early 2010 for two away Tests, followed by two home Tests against the same nation. While in Bangladesh, he had a quiet series. In the first of the home series however, at Lords on 28 May, he scored his second Test century – a career best 226 and took his first test wicket.[23] After his double century at Lord's, Trott scored just three runs in the second and final Test at Old Trafford.

Trott's next international match was against Bangladesh in the second of three ODIs. This was a historic match as Bangladesh, despite a gutsy 94 from 130 deliveries from Trott, defeated England for the first time in any form of the game. After this defeat however, England fought back to win the series in the third ODI in which Trott scored 110 off 121 deliveries and he shared in a second-wicket stand of 250 along with England captain Andrew Strauss. This stand helped England up to a massive 347 for 7 in their 50 overs.

Pakistan 2010

Pakistan toured England for England's final series of the summer. England won the first two games with ease, by 354 runs and 9 wickets respectively, with Trott making two half-centuries in the second. After losing the third Test, England and Trott fought back in the final Test at Lord's. After seeing England collapse to 102–7 in their first innings, Trott scored 184 to see England to 446 all out. This included a Test record eighth-wicket partnership of 332 with Stuart Broad, who scored a similarly-notable 169. That stand was the turning point in the match as it turned a near-disaster into a solid innings performance that allowed top-form English bowling and fielding to dismantle Pakistan and earn an innings victory. Trott was named England's Man of the Series for his strong batting performance during the series.

2010–11 Ashes

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. Trott's century meant he scored centuries in successive Test Matches against Australia following his 119 at The Oval in the 5th Test of the 2009 Ashes in England.

In the second Test, Trott ran-out Simon Katich in the first over of the match to start a top-order collapse which saw Australia lose 3 wickets for just 2 runs. He then made a strong 78 off 144 balls in a partnership with Alastair Cook in the first innings, contributing notably to England's 620–5d and eventual innings victory.

He continued his fine form against Australia with a century at the MCG in the fourth Test. After England bowled Australia out for just 98, he scored his third century against them (his fifth overall in Test cricket). Ably supported by Kevin Pietersen (51) and Matt Prior (85), Trott finished not out on 168 as England were bowled out for 513. England won by an innings and 157 runs to retain the Ashes, and Trott was named Man of the Match.[24]

Having played his sixth Test against Australia, he now averages 86.42 against them and 61.53 in all Test cricket, and had scored centuries in the two matches that won and retained the Ashes for England.[25]

2011 ICC World Cup

Following the Ashes, Trott played 7 ODIs against Australia. Although England lost the series 6–1, he scored two centuries which meant he went to the 2011 World Cup as England's most in-form one-day batsman.

Although Trott didn't score any further centuries, he did score five half-centuries as England reached the quarter finals where they lost by 10 wickets to Sri Lanka. A total of 422 runs meant Trott was the tournament's top run scorer when England departed. In addition to the 459 runs he scored against Australia, his World Cup haul saw him reach fifth place in the ICC ODI player rankings.

Sri Lanka 2011

Sri Lanka toured England in May and June. In the first Test in Cardiff, Trott participated in of partnerships of 251 and 160 on his way to making 203, his second Test double-century, thereby increasing his remarkable batting average to 66.77. This score of 203, set the highest individual score by an English player against Sri Lanka, breaking Graham Gooch's score of 174. He also took his second test wicket on day five of the second test.
