We should be grateful that other cricketers before Trott have revealed issues in public, slowly reducing the issue of stigma for everyone.— Alternative Cricket (@AltCricket) November 25, 2013
Do a Twitter search with "Trott" to see how many people still don't understand what mental illness is.It's a sickness. Not a choice.— Iain O'Brien (@iainobrien) November 25, 2013

—Trott leaves Ashes tour with 'stress-related illness'—England's calamitous start to the Ashes continued on Monday when batsman Jonathan Trott walked out on the squad with a stress-related illness which ruled him out of the remainder of the series Down Under.
The day after England were thrashed in the first test by 381 runs, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) issued a statement saying Trott was taking a break from cricket for the "foreseeable future".
Since breaking into the test side in 2009 Trott has built a reputation as a reliable and resilient number three but he appeared to have been targetted as a potential weakness by the Australians ahead of the current series.
