Michael Vaughan feels 'guilty' for criticising Trott

Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan has admitted he feels guilty for criticising Jonathan Trott's performance in the opening Ashes test after it was revealed the England batsman was struggling with a stress-related illness.

Vaughan described Jonathan Trott's performance in the second innings of the first test at the Gabba as among the "worst I have seen from an England No.3".

England Managing Director Andy Flower earlier said Trott's exit was not influenced by criticism of his display.
