Jamie Oliver Troughton (born 2 March 1979) is an English former professional cricketer. He was mainly an attack-minded left-handed batsman but also an occasional slow left-arm orthodox bowler. He played for and captained the county side Warwickshire and has played for the England one day international team.
He played six one day internationals for England, scoring 36 runs at an average of nine. He was a hard-hitting batsman with a good range of shots. He averaged a respectable 40 plus in the four day county game.
He won the NBC Denis Compton Award in 2002. He is the son of the Shakespearean actor David Troughton. His grandfather, Patrick Troughton, starred as the Doctor in the science fiction series Doctor Who in the 1960s. He is also the younger brother of Robin Hood actor Sam Troughton and the cousin of actor Harry Melling from the Harry Potter films.
He was named Warwickshire captain for the 2011 season in November 2010. Troughton captained Warwickshire to 2nd place in the 2011 County Championship, losing out on the title on the last day of the final game, with Lancashire finishing as champions. However, this disappointment was short-lived as Troughton oversaw Warwickshire win the County Championship a year later.
On 19 August 2014 Troughton announced that he would be retiring, with immediate effect, because of a back injury.
