Trott to make comeback

Jonathan Trott will make his comeback in first-class cricket for Warwickshire in Sunday’s County Championship fixture against Nottinghamshire.

The 33-year-old has not played a first-class match for 10 weeks following a recurrence of the stress-related symptoms that forced him to depart early from England's Ashes tour of Australia this winter.

The South African-born batsman started the County Championship season for Warwickshire, scoring 37 and 26 in their opening fixture against Sussex.

In the past fortnight, he has played in two Natwest Twenty20 Blast matches for the county, scoring one against Northamptonshire on June 19 and 39 against Worcestershire a day later.

Warwickshire are currently sixth in the County Championship Division One table. They lost their last match by an innings and eight runs to leaders Yorkshire.

Trott has been an accomplished performer for both his county and England.

Since making his Test debut in 2009, he has played in 49 Tests, scoring nine centuries and 18 half-centuries.

His 3,763 runs have come at an average of 46.45 and his highest score is the 226 he made against Bangladesh at Lord's in 2010.
