Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan has criticised Warwickshire batsman Jonathan Trott's exit from The Ashes test in November, calling it a 'con'.
It comes after an interview with Trott was broadcast on Sky Sports News last night.
Trott flew home from Australia after the first Test in Brisbane after he had become so ill that he was not eating or sleeping properly.
The 32-year-old consulted with team doctors before making a decision he admits had left him feeling worried he would be branded a "nutcase".
In an interview which aired on Sky Sports on Sunday night, Trott said:
However some of his comments have attracted criticism from former England captain Michael Vaughan.
Writing in his weekly column in The Telegraph newspaper he said:
After Trott left the Ashes test in November, Michael Vaughan tweeted that he felt guilty for criticising the Warwickshire batsman's performance, when it was revealed he'd been suffering from stress.
However in the Sky Sports News interview, the right hander said he 'just burnt out'.
Trott is planning to return to cricket with Warwickshire on April 1 when they play Gloucestershire in a two-day pre-season match.
He also said in the interview he hopes to return to the England squad, and has targeted the opening game of the summer, a one-day international against Scotland on May 8.
