Trott commits to Warwickshire
England batsman Jonathan Trott has signed a new contract to stay at Warwickshire until 2015.
The 30-year-old, who was named ICC Cricketer of the Year in September, enjoyed a hugely successful year across all formats of the game as England retained the Ashes and established themselves as the world's No. 1 Test team.
Trott, who hit a century on his County Championship debut in 2003, admits he never really considered leaving the club he joined back in 2002.
"It's been fantastic to be part of the Warwickshire team for the last 10 years," Trott told Warwickshire's official website. "We've got an exciting young squad that's capable of challenging for trophies, an experienced and innovative coaching team, and some of the best facilities in world cricket. I'm looking forward to many more years here at Edgbaston."
"Jonathan has made a massive impact at Warwickshire since joining the club, and it's a great boost that he's committed to playing his county cricket here at Edgbaston for the foreseeable future," Warwickshire director of cricket Ashley Giles said. "He's popular with everyone and we're all delighted that's he's gone on to achieve so much with England over the last few years.
"Having two of the world's top 10 batsmen [Trott and Ian Bell] training here with the squad since we started our pre-season programme has been great for the younger members. Both are fantastic role models and we wish them well in upcoming tour of the UAE for England's Test Series against Pakistan."
