The burly left-hander looked a natural international player on his debut four years ago, and has become a key player in England's team ever since being drafted into the squad.

The big-hitting opener quickly rose through the ranks, becoming vice-captain under Nasser Hussain's stewardship. His prolific opening partnership with Michael Vaughan wreaked havoc with opposition bowlers in the summer of 2002.

A poor run in the Ashes later that year, followed by a difficult World Cup campaign in 2003, put Trescothick low on confidence.

After sorting out a few technical issues with his game, the left-hander responded in style, blasting centuries and half-centuries in quick succession last summer in limited overs contests.

A return to form in Tests seemed imminent. It came with a stunning 219 against South Africa in September 2003, followed by another ton in his next innings against Bangladesh.

Trescothick struggled in the 2004 Test series in the Caribbean but roared back with consistent knocks in the one-dayers, which earned him the Man of the Series award.

He is also likely to be drafted in behind the stumps should anything happen to the first choice wicket-keeper.
