Jonathan Trott 'available' for England selection again

Jonathan Trott reveals that he is available for England selection again after overcoming the stress-related illness which halted his international career 10 months ago.

Jonathan Trott has revealed that he is available for England selection again, 10 months after his last appearance.

The Warwickshire batsman has not played international cricket since leaving the Ashes whitewash in Australia last November with a 'stress-related illness'.

The 33-year-old did not have his central contract renewed last week, but has suggested that he is ready for an England recall after overcoming his health issues to rediscover his form at county level, where he has scored three centuries in as many months.

"The ECB and I have had our final get-together. I've been signed off by the ECB," Trott told BBC WM. "Whatever comes along with regards to selection, maybe. I'm not putting too much pressure on myself.

"There's been some challenging times. Some tough times. But I've been available a while, for the last month or two, I suppose, in terms of selection and I'm enjoying my cricket.

"I've been feeling good for a while now. It's been great going back to Warwickshire. The last couple of months with Warwickshire have been fantastic."

Trott has scored 3,763 Test runs at an average of 46.45 since making his debut against Australia in 2009.
