The Somerset left-hander has cemented his place in the side since making his debut in The NatWest Series in 2000 and his aggressive style has often been the cornerstone of the England innings.

He was named man of the series in The NatWest Series last year and made 109 in the final against India. Captained the team in the absence of Nasser Hussain against Zimbabwe in 2001 and is also a fine slip fielder.

Called into the squad as a replacement against West Indies and Zimbabwe two years ago, Trescothick did not waste the opportunity. He made a half century in his first appearance and has never looked back since then, establishing himself a first-choice opener in both Test and one-day versions.

Trescothick hit 137 against Pakistan during last year's NatWest Series and followed that with 121 off 109 balls against India in Calcutta during the winter.

He bats intelligently by never chasing the ball out side the off stump. Along with Thorpe and Hussain, he forms the mainstay of the England middle -order.
