Jonathan Trott, the classy English batsman called curtains on his career in the last week. Meanwhile, the director of the Warwickshire, Ashley Giles showered words of praises on Trott for his exceptional service over the years.

He quoted that they will miss the presence of Jonathan Trott in their ranks. Further, Giles added that England has been waiting for a long time now to find a player like Jonathan Trott in the English team.

The director went on say that he would ask Trott to bat for his life when he is at his very best. He further bid a farewell in a grand way by calling him the greatest number 3 batsman, who never likes to get out.

Another quality of Trott’s highlighted by Giles was his ability to stay at the crease for long hours. All in all, Ashley Giles is very much disappointed with the retirement by Jonathan Trott.

“We’re going to miss him, absolutely no doubt about that.  He’s going to leave a gap because he has been one of the best players in the country for a long time. He developed into someone famous for his scratching at the crease – almost digging a trench there,”  Giles told The Cricket Paper on Tuesday.

”He became very process-driven and some of the best players are. He was very structured in his thinking. When he was at his best, I don’t think I would have anyone else batting for my life than him. He managed the percentages so well, he didn’t like getting out,” he added.

Trott, the best number 3 batsman – Ashley

Giles furtherly highlighted the fact that England enjoyed quite a success when Jonathan Trott was batting at number 3 for the team. He questioned whether it is the coincidence or his brilliance.

“England has been crying out for another Jonathan Trott to come off the rank, but they’ve never really replaced him.  “He really emphasised just how crucial that number three role was. Was it any coincidence that England had that run of success when he was batting there? I don’t think so.”

However, as Ashley Giles said, He has always been the tough nut to crack down. Although, a bitter truth is that every player needs to call it quits on one day so does the Jonathan Trott.
