Profile

A brutal left-handed opening batsman, Marcus Trecothick was one of the finest opening batsman to play for England, described as a left-handed Gooch by Nasser Hussain but with strokeplay just as reminiscent of David Gower. He has the ability to bully bowling attacks and was a key factor in England's change in fortunes and spearheaded a no-holds-barred approach against Australia in the Ashes win of 2005. A stress-related illness saw his international career cut short but he continues to entertain for Somerset and has the ambition to play until he is 40.
