Jonathan Trott has sent a warning to the both the Australian side and its sister the “A” team that he has improved what little flaws he had in his game.
While he has made his name as one of the best top-order players in the game, Trott looked out of sorts at times during the home summer.
So much so Australian coach Darren Lehmann and other believed they had Trott figured out, but the man himself says he has got a few new tricks up his sleeve.
“People are going to bowl short balls and yorkers and all sorts to try to get you out – I got out to full balls a lot more than short balls,” Trott said in Hobart ahead of England’s encounter with Australia A.
“It’s one of the things people’s perception is, and everyone is entitled to their own perception. I know what I’ve got to focus on this series and what I did when we came here three years ago.
“Ryan Harris played then, in a pretty similar bowling attack then. I have got good memories of being here but I wouldn’t say I’m particularly worried about anything specifically delivery-wise, it’s more about me getting my game in nick and feeling good.”
Trott and Ian scored tons in the side’s earlier tour game against Western Australia which ended in a draw.
However, they will get a much sterner test when they tackle Australia A at Blundstone Oval, with several fringe Test players for the home side pushing for claims to make their way into the starting XI for the first test which begins at the Gabba in Brisbane on November 21.
