Ashes 2019: England Set To Add Marcus Trescothick To Coaching Panel For First Two Tests
The former English skipper and the batsman Marcus Trescothick to join the England camp for the upcoming Ashes series. He will be part of the team for a couple of matches, where he is set to help the batting coach in helping the batsman to counter Australia’s lethal bowling attack.
According to a report in ESPNCricinfo on Tuesday, Trescothick, who recently called time on his playing career, will join the England team for training ahead of the first two Tests at Edgbaston and Lord’s respectively.
Marcus Trescothick joins Trott:
Former England player Jonathon Trott has also fulfilled a similar role with the team ahead of the Test match against Ireland, ESPN Cricinfo reported. However, this appointment does not mean that either of them will necessarily go on to succeed Mark Ramprakash as the batting coach.
The England Cricket Board (ECB) are still yet to identify a suitable replacement for Mark Ramprakash. He left the side a couple of months ago. But they’re using the expertise of Trott and Trescothick to ease off the burden on Graham Thorpe – the ECB’s lead batting coach.
According to the report, Trescothick, who played 76 Tests averaging 43.79, will be with the team both in training sessions and at the team hotel, to support players as required.
The opening batsman was also a part of the England squad which famously captured the Ashes series on home soil in 2005. He is now expected to help assist England’s batsmen to prepare for the Ashes series with the team currently without a full-time batting coach.
Trescothick represented Somerset in county cricket and he has 52 first-class centuries to his credit. He even has the highest List-A runs (7374) than any other player from Somerset. He made his debut for Somerset in 1993. The left-handed batsman also holds the record for the most first-class catches (445) for the county.
Trescothick had a fine international career for England as he went on to play 76 Test matches for the team. The batsman scored more than 5800 runs for the side at an average of 43.79.
