Jonathan Trott, full name Ian Jonathan Leonard Trott, is a right hand aggressive batsman and right arm medium bowler representing England.
He previously featured in the Under-15 and Under-19 World Cups for South Africa. He is however a British passport holder and made his first team debut for Warwickshire in 2003.
In 2002, Trott recorded a score of 245 runs for Warwickshire’s Second XI on his debut, while a score of 134 on his County Championship debut for Warwickshire against Sussex in 2003. He also played in the Twenty20 Cup, hitting a 54-ball 65 not out against Gloucestershire.
He picked up 7 first class wickets for 39 against Kent at Canterbury, also in 2003.
Later in 2005, Trott became one of only two Warwickshire batsmen to have scored 1000 first class runs and a top score of 210. He has topped Warwickshire’s averages in the domestic one-day competition with an average of more than 60, including 2 centuries.
He later played for New Zealand’s side of Otago but was unable to continue on account of back problems.
Again in 2006, he topped 1000 runs and thus received a call to play with England’s one-day squad in June 2007.
He is reportedly related to the former Australian cricketer Albert Trott.
Jonathan Trott has a total of 5437 first class runs to his credit.
