England batsman Jonathan Trott is looking forward to a swift turnaround in form, when the Ashes series gets underway in Brisbane on 21 November.

Trott endured a string of poor performances against the Australians earlier this year, with two ducks and three other scores under 25 typifying the troubles.

"I got myself out a few times and first Test at Trent Bridge I got a weird review. I'm still scratching my head about that," said Trott.

"I technically had a few flaws which I have hopefully ironed out. It was to do with balance and it wasn't what I normally do.

"So it was a little bit out, but in an Ashes series you don't want to tinker too much and be too specific on your cricket because the games come thick and fast.

Little things creeping in and a lot of little things create a big thing. I wouldn't say I had a huge problem, I was thereabouts but I was probably finding my balance and technique wasn't there."

The talented right-hander offered plenty of promise last week, scoring an unbeaten century in the drawn three-day fixture against the Western Australian Chairman's XI in Perth.

He will be presented to capitalise on this solid start this week, as the tourists and Australia A clash for a four-day match in Hobart.

"If you're not getting runs it's not as if you're looking for answers but you want to know why you're not getting runs, sometimes there is no answer," he added.

"You have to wait your turn, keep working really hard, keep giving to the team and that's really important."
