“He is raring to go again”
England batsman Jonathan Trott is set to make his make his comeback in time for the start of England’s county season in April, where he will represent Warwickshire.
Trott has not played any form of cricket since returning home from the last Ashes series in Australia with a stress-related illness.
Following his return to England, Trott received endless support from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA).
Even though he will not accompany Warwickshire for their pre-season tour of the West Indies, Dennis Amiss, the chairman of Trott’s 2014 benefit committee, stated that the 32-year-old was eager to return to representing his county and England as well.
“He’s doing very well,” Amiss told the BBC. “He’s had a great rest, which is very important, and he is raring to go again.
“He’s still very hungry. He wants to continue succeeding both for Warwickshire and for England.”
“Cricket is his passion and I believe he has qualities, as we’ve seen, to be able to score a mass of runs for Warwickshire to get himself back into the England side and regain his position.”
“I think it was essentially burnout. The England and Wales Cricket Board has helped him while he has been back. Everybody has given him a lot of help. Rest has been the most important thing.”
