On bbc.co.uk, Jonathan Agnew says Jonathan Trott is the best No. 3 England have had in many years, flexible enough to come in second ball or at 120 for 1. Though some may be frustrated by his slow scoring-rate, he's exactly the kind of player England have been crying out for, Agnew writes.
That means you have to be a quite flexible player and you have to be someone who can cope with a crisis. It's difficult to compare him to other England number threes, not least because they really haven't had a successful number three for a while. That's why they're very grateful to have him and I'm sure he will score a mountain of runs. England have been crying out for someone to bat like that and now they've got one I certainly wouldn't be criticising him.
