Warwickshire's Jonathan Trott is out of the rest of the Ashes series in Australia. He flew home at the end of the first test in Brisbane, with what is being described as a long-term, stress-related illness.
Trott has been one of England's most important batsman in recent years, but he has come in for heavy criticism in Australia, getting just 19 runs in two innings as England collapsed to a 381 run defeat over the weekend.
He will be taking a break from the game, and the management at Warwickshire have said Trott has their full support. He also received the support today of former England players including the ex-Leicestershire captain Matthew Hoggard.
