Farewell Jonathan Trott
With the announcement earlier this week that Jonathan Trott will be retiring from cricket at the end of the 2018 county cricket season, we take a look at some of the best moments throughout his career.
A memorable debut
After being drafted in for his international debut in the series-deciding Ashes Test in 2009, Trott would go on to score his maiden century, helping England regain the Ashes.
Trott reaches the first of his four One-Day International hundreds for England against Bangladesh in 2010, at his home ground of Edgbaston.
In the opening Test match of the 2010/11 Ashes series in Brisbane, Trott was one of the three England batsmen to punish the Australian bowlers, with the tourists posting a remarkable scorecard of 517-1.
A late Christmas present
Trott emotionally celebrates reaching his century on the second day of the Boxing Day Test of the 2010/11 Ashes series in Melbourne.
Magnificent in Melbourne
Trott is applauded off the ground at the MCG by the thousands in attendance as he finishes 168 not out. He would go on to earn the Man of the Match award as England win the Melbourne Test comprehensively.
Ashes defence complete
After his century in 2009 helped England win back the Ashes, a victorious Trott kisses the urn in Sydney as England retain the trophy at the end of the 2010/11 series, with Trott finishing as the third highest-run scorer during the five Tests.
Best in the world
Posing with Warwickshire and England teammate Ian Bell, Trott celebrates with the ICC Test Championship mace after England are confirmed as the number one Test side in the world.
Runs keep flowing
Trott reaches his ninth and final Test century in an England shirt against New Zealand in Wellington. He finishes with a Test average of 44.08 in 52 matches.
After hitting the winning runs, Trott exits the field at Lords with 82 not out to his name as Warwickshire chase down Surrey’s total to win the 2016 Royal London One-Day Cup.
Alongside good friend Bell, Trott enjoys the celebrations after the One-Day Cup win. Is there a final honour still to come in his final season?…
