Former England batsman Jonathan Trott is all set to be named the new batting coach of England U-19 for the upcoming ICC U19 World Cup, which will begin from January 2018 in New Zealand. Despite being under the contract with Warwickshire as a player, Trott had an impressive outing as coach with England Lions during their tour of Australia this year.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) forced Steve Rhodes to resign as coach following a disciplinary enquiry from Warwickshire. Gloucestershire coach Richard Dawson has been named as Rhodes’ replacement, as reported by ESPNcricinfo.

The U-19 World Cup will be played from January 19 to February 3. This will be the 12th edition of the U-19 World Cup, as the inaugural edition was held back in 1988.

Trott has played 52 Tests and 68 ODIs for England, which included three Ashes wins. He also represented South Africa in the 2000 U-19 World Cup.
