No 'timescale' on Trott's return from 'mental illness', says county side Warwickshire

London, Nov 27 (ANI): England batsman Jonathan Trott's county side Warwickshire has said that there is no timescale on when he will play again following his return to England from the winter Ashes series in Australia to be with his family over 'stress-related illness'.

Trott left Australia in the wake of England's 381-run first Test defeat in Brisbane, having scored only 19 runs in two innings as he struggled against the hostile bowling of Mitchell Johnson.

According to the BBC, Warwickshire's director of cricket Dougie Brown said that Trott's return depends on his recovery, adding that there is no timescale from them and probably from the national team as to when he will play again.

Stating that they would be extending their support to Trott and his family, Warwickshire chief executive Colin Povey said that they have been aware that Trott had been managing the situation for a number of years, adding that whenever he had dealt with difficult circumstances in the past, they have rallied around him and will do so again.

Povey further said that Trott has a number of good friends in the county club, adding that all of them want to see him back playing some cricket and enjoying himself.

The report mentioned that Brown has consulted both with former Warwickshire coach Ashley Giles, now England's one-day coach, and former England opener Marcus Trescothick, who also returned home from Australia in 2006 with a similar condition. (ANI)
