But it is maybe the batting that is of more worry. Things were looking good for 10 overs until Kieswetter gave fine leg catching practice - he couldn't have hit a very hittable ball more directly at the fielder if he had tried. Some mental fault there FB thinks. Trott came in and the brakes slammed on and the commentators got stuck it. With some justification -Trott is a one paced player. There is a cruel Twitter thread on #Trott's fault in which he is blamed for every calamity in the universe from the present financial mess to the Tweeter losing a 50p down the back of the sofa. If it annoys you or threatens you - it's Trott's fault. Now FB is not so ungenerous to suggest that England's defeat was Trott's fault, but he certainly didn't help them do much to avoid it. He may well be an asset on a green top when wickets are falling all around, but with a big total to chase in the sun - no. Time for Bopara?
KP looked not even a shadow of the player he can be. Even Bell underperformed. Malinga's fine catch of KP's understruck and inelegant club to mid on was indicative of the difference between the teams in the field too. You can't field better than a Kwik Fit Fielder..............but not Trott's fault.
