Trott homesick ... for UK

Cape Town - Jonathan Trott insists he is so completely British he gets homesick for Birmingham when he returns to Cape Town.

Trott was born in Cape Town and knows some may doubt his patriotism with South Africa’s arrival on Friday for a three-Test series - which will decide the world’s No 1 team.

But, according to The Sun website, Trott said: “I feel completely British.

“I went back to South Africa for my brother’s wedding last year and didn’t enjoy it at all.

“Every time I’ve been back to Cape Town - for weddings, a holiday or whatever - I’ve always moved my flight so I can come home earlier.”

He added; “It’s nothing to do with crime or political reasons. I just didn’t enjoy being away from home. And home is Birmingham.

“Let me tell you - when the sun shines, there’s no better country in the world than England.

“You can have the mountains and the oceans but May and June in England are perfect. There’s nowhere better.”

The Proteas open their tour of England with an ODI on July 19.
