Jonathan Trott will be a happy man when he walks out on his home turf at Edgbaston for England in their ICC Champions Trophy final against India on Sunday.

England will play in their second Champions Trophy final on Sunday and will be hoping to claim a first 50-over victory.

There will be plenty of support for India at Edgbaston, but Trott says it will also be a personal highlight for him being at home.

"To walk out at Edgbaston will be extra special so for me personally I'm very excited," said Trott.

"It's always fantastic for me, Ian Bell and Chris Woakes to play at Edgbaston - representing England is always a fantastic honour.

"The guys are looking to seize the opportunity. They don't come around very often."

England beat Australia but then had to respond to a defeat against Sri Lanka, and trot hopes their displays are a good sign for a big summer ahead.

"It's been a fantastic tournament (for us), with regards to coming back from a loss against Sri Lanka.

"We had the high of beating Australia first up, and then the game against New Zealand - a tight one in the end, but I thought we played really well - and to beat South Africa at The Oval was a great performance.

"I hope we are peaking. There's obviously still a lot of cricket left this summer, and I hope it will be a great one for England."
