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. He also played for the England one day international team.
Troughton was born into a well-known British acting family. He is the son of the stage and television actor David Troughton, who is a leading member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the nephew of Michael Troughton. His grandfather, Patrick Troughton, was best known for playing the Second Doctor in Doctor Who. He is also the younger brother of Robin Hood actor Sam Troughton and the cousin of Harry Melling, who appeared in the Harry Potter films.
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 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. On 15 December 2016, Warwickshire County Cricket Club appointed him as First Team Coach.
