Jonathan Trott back in training but has no plans to return to action
Sunday 18 May 2014
Jonathan Trott has returned to training with Warwickshire but there is currently no set schedule for his return to action.
The 33-year-old England batsman returned home after the first Ashes Test in Brisbane last winter because of a stress-related illness, and he experienced a repeat of the symptoms when he made his attempted comeback in the first county championship game of the season in April.
Trott has continued to be involved with the club in a small capacity since, and on Friday trained with the squad. Further sessions are planned but it is understood that Trott's involvement is entirely his choice and he is under no obligation to commit full time to training and no timescale has been set for a return to playing.
"Trotty had a net on Thursday and he took a full part in practice yesterday," director of cricket Dougie Brown confirmed. "He's back hitting the ball and he is being integrated into the stuff that we are doing. He will probably train with us again over the weekend but at this stage he is not in our plans to be playing second-team cricket next week."
