Michael Vaughan: England coach Peter Moores must be axed and put in charge of ‘kids’
England captain Eoin Morgan and coach Peter Moores must be sacked immediately
According to The Mirror, the 33-year-old batsman has recovered well from his Ashes trauma after impressing with County side Wawrickshire.
Trott also starred with the England Lions on its tour of South Africa after hitting a superb 211 not out against South Africa ‘A’ in January.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan certainly backs Trott’s claims for a Test spot, saying the South Africa-born batsman has proved his worth with the Lions.
“I think if you look at the Lions trip, he was the best player,” Vaughan is quoted as saying by The Mirror.
“You can understand why they’d want to go to him.
“In Test cricket, they miss his style of play. When he is in form and of good mind then he is one of the main reasons they got to number one in the world, because he was the rock at three.
“He was a calming influence, but his record suggests that when he does face really quick bowling like South Africa away and Australia away there has been an issue.”
Trott infamously quit the England side during the failed Ashes series against Australia due to a “stress related illness”.
