Jonathan Trott has been named International Cricket Council cricketer of the year.

The Warwickshire man scored more than 1,000 runs in international cricket this year and beat Alastair Cook, Sachin Tendulkar, and Hasim Amla to the award.

Trott played a pivotal role in helping England win the Ashes in Australia this winter. Since Trott made his debut for England in 2009, he has averaged over 50 in both formats of the game.

England’s Alastair Cook was named Test match player of the year, whilst Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara took the honours in the one-day format.

Other awards saw Ryan ten Doeschate named associate player of the year, and the umpire of the year went to Aleem Dar, who has now won the award three times.

England were well represented at this ceremony, and will be hoping for another successful year as a team, and individually within the international circuit.
