I do feel guilty for criticising Trott this week .. I wasn't to know what he was going through and I can only comment on what I see ...

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.
