Thats the view of Bangladesh coach Jamie Siddons, who has called on the umpires to warn OCD Trott to be ready to face the next ball when the Bangladesh bowlers reach their mark and turn to start their run up.
It’s probably not much to ask of Trott, but it remains to be seen if this will have any effect on his approach to his batting.
Trott almost seems to enjoy the fact that it seems to get up his opponents noses. A lot of fuss was kicked up on the tour of South Africa also, but nothing changed there, or since.
There is a more than strong possibility that the Aussies will attempt to make an issue out of it later this year in the Ashes series, he will probably get dogs abuse out there.
Could this be a mistake though, could all this be Trott’s secret weapon?
It is hard to know whether all this increases the pressure on Trott? And if so, is it pressure he enjoys, pressure that makes him concentrate more and play better?
Sledging him over it could prove costly, it could be what he thrives on. It might be in the Aussies best interests to keep quiet on the issue.
One thing that is for sure, is that at the moment it seems to be working well enough. He scored over 250 runs in the last test match, and now has a test average of over 53 from his 8 matches to date.
