Marcus Trescothick

County: Somerset

England have got some stick in cricketing circles over the years, but there's one thing they're certainly good at - producing quality openers.

Bowlers the world over were relishing Mike Atherton's retirement so they could get at someone else who would show less resistance.

And then along comes Trescothick who has the potential to be even better - I really like the look of him.

He has performed well against Australia in the past and he is one of England's big, big players.
