    Not to be pedantic but It says Trott has 2246 Test Match runs at 68.06?

    Cricinfo says he has 1867 runs @ 62.23 after 34 innings, so he's behind Hussey in speed to reach 2000 runs (he took 33 innings) and will need at least 133 runs in his next 2 innings to make the all-time top 10...which could be considered legend status as Viv Richards, Worrell and Weekes all did it in 36 innings

    That piece was written during the England-Sri Lanka Test series, so Trott's average won't be quite as high as it was a couple of matches ago.

    Edit: Ah, I see. Perhaps Peter has miscalculated.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    a good read.

    feel that he will end up being a very good batsman rather than a legendary one by the time his career is done, with a career average in the mid to late 40s.

    am still hoping for pietersen to get his act together consistently and bump his average above 50.
    i know i am god. since when i pray i find i am talking to myself.

    Very interesting piece.

    The only thing I would note is that Trott made his debut batting at five. He's batter three ever since though.

    I think Alastair Cook will end up accomplishing more at the end.

    Once he goes through a few bad innings all his technical faults/weaknesses will become apparant again.
    His game is mainly based on high concentration and strong determination so if he even loses some confidence in his ability, he'll go back to 09 form I believe.

    However, if keeps doing well then you never know....
    If he negotiates Zaheer well, who is outstanding against left-handers, then he may well never look back (that'll erase my doubts)

    I think also Cook was served up a lot of hearty meat pies in Aus which does help during a run of form - however it's not Cooks fault we're crap and I admire his determination and consistency.

    Seriously? Legend? Is that become such a throw away term these days?

    It says 'The Making of a Legend'

    It's not hard to see what is being suggested
