Trott content at three
England batsman Jonathan Trott has insisted he is happy playing at number three in the batting order ahead of their tour of India.
With former opener and captain Andrew Strauss calling time on his playing career, there is a vacancy in the player who will partner Alastair Cook in the batting order.
Trott has been tipped to move up the order for the first Test against India on November 15 but the South African-born batsman has insisted he is happier in his current role in the side.
He told Sky Sports News: "I've enjoyed batting number three in my career, since my second Test match when I was put in that position...I feel like I've done a pretty good job there.
"But, if asked to open I'd have to - or I'd like to - do what the team want me to.
"Number three is my preference but we'll just have to wait and see. I don't think it will come to that."
