Trott Opens For England

CRICKET : Jonathan Trott was set to open for England at Centurion against South Africa today, in only his second one-day international.

Jonathan Trott was set to open for England at Centurion against South Africa today, in only his second one-day international.
England’s new batting find replaced Joe Denly – alongside captain Andrew Strauss – at the top of the order, against his native country.
As expected, Paul Collingwood was also named for his 171st appearance at this level – therefore becoming England’s most-capped ODI player, ahead of former captain Alec Stewart.
There was no place, though, for off-spinner James Tredwell – England preferring Adil Rashid’s leg-breaks after all.
Among the seamers, Sajid Mahmood was given an opportunity in an attack led by fit-again Jimmy Anderson.
Strauss won the toss and chose to bowl first in sunny conditions for this second fixture of a five-match series – which began with a Wanderers washout two days ago.
South Africa’s team selection was as anticipated, Hashim Amla replacing the injured Jacques Kallis to open with captain Graeme Smith.
