Jonathan Trott hopes England's Champions Trophy final against India at Edgbaston tomorrow can lay the platform for the remainder of a successful season.

 

Trott, third in the list of the tournament's leading run-scorers with his 209 runs behind only that of India's Shikhar Dhawan 332 and Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara 222, will be looking to help England to their first major one-day international title this weekend.

 

England has been trying for nearly 40 years and 16 previous tournaments to break their duck, and success tomorrow could act as a springboard for their defence of the Ashes starting next month.
