England batsman retires from international cricket


England batsman Jonathan Trott has retired from international cricket.

The 34-year-old returned to the Test side for the tour of the West Indies, 18 months after leaving the Ashes tour with a stress-related illness, but managed only 72 runs in six innings.

The Warwickshire right-hander scored 3,835 runs in 52 Tests, including a century on his debut in the 2009 Ashes decider.

He played in two more successful Ashes campaigns and was named the International Cricket Council player of the year in 2011.
