Trott rejects opener role idea

CRICKET: England’s Jonathan Trott has rebuffed suggestions he could open the batting in India. The uncapped Nick Compton is tipped to partner captain Alastair Cook in next week’s first Test. “There’s going to be someone making their debut and whoever gets that spot will do a great job,” said No3 Trott of Compton and rival Joe Root. “There’s not been much debate or talk about [Trott opening] in the dressing room.”
