Jonathan Trott - ICC Cricketer of the Year

Jonathan Trott, who scored more than 1,000 runs in both Test and One-Day internationals at averages of 65 and 48 respectively, was named Cricketer of the Year at the ICC's Awards Dinner in London, which also recognised success for both Graeme Swann and Ryan ten Doeschate in a great night for Gunn & Moore players.

Trott praised the rest of an England side that recently achieved the number one Test ranking for the first time under the current system and beat World Cup winners India in a One-Day series.

The 30-year-old only made his England debut in 2009 but has become an established presence at number three and averages above 50 in both Tests and One-Day Internationals.

"I never envisaged winning this award and it's a brilliant feeling to be recognised," Trott said.

"If you'd said to me two years ago that I'd have won this player-of-the-year award, I'd have asked you if you really should be out at this time," he said.

"But it's an amazing feeling. I'm really, really happy and just want to let it sink in now."

Earlier at the same ceremony, Graeme Swann was the only English player to have been selected in the One-Day International Team of the Year and Essex's Netherlands international Ryan ten Doeschate was named Player of the Year for the Associate and Affiliate Nations.
