Trott shines after injury layoff

Friday, 26 August 2011

Dublin – Jonathan Trott returned from injury Thursday to hit 69 in England's 201-8 in a rain-affected one-day international against Ireland at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground.
After missing England's last two Test victories over India, Trott opened the batting alongside Craig Kieswetter and top scored despite continually losing partners.
Eoin Morgan captained England against the country of his birth and was the only other batsman to score heavily, hitting 59 from 65 balls. Chris Woakes managed 19 and debutant Scott Borthwick 15.
John Mooney was the pick of the bowlers with 3-32, including the wickets of Trott and Kieswetter.
The match was reduced to 42 overs per side after a rain interruption during England's innings.
