4. Jonathan Trott: unflappable and reassuring presence, the most consistent England No 3 of all time, but looked a little shaky on the bouncy Perth pitch. – 8/10
Thats the view of Simon Hughes in his Ashes players ratings for the Daily Telegraph.
Don’t get me wrong, I like Jonathan Trott, I think he has done a decent – but not world beating – job since he came into the side. We also never hear the debate over England’s problem position any more, which is also a credit to Trott’s performances.
But to say that Trott is already the most consistent England No.3 of all time is getting just a touch carried away, he has done a decent job and has been our best and most consistent No. 3 for some time, but most consistent ever, I think thats jumping the gun a bit.
