We had the high of beating <a href="/tags/Australia/post" target="_blank">Australia </a>first up, and then the game against <a href="/tags/New-Zealand/post" target="_blank">New Zealand</a> — a tight one in the end, but I thought we played really well — and to beat <a href="/tags/South-Africa/post" target="_blank">South Africa</a> at The Oval [in Wednesday's semi-final was a great performance]."<br /> <br /> He added: "I hope we are peaking. There's obviously still a lot of cricket left this summer, and I hope it will be a great one for England."<br /> <br /> Victory over India would be an ideal start and Trott added, "To walk out at Edgbaston will be extra-special. For me personally, I'm very excited. It's always fantastic for me, Ian Bell and Chris Woakes [his Warwickshire team-mates in the one-day squad] to play at Edgbaston — representing England is always a fantastic honour. The guys are looking to seize the opportunity. They don't come around very often."
