Marcus Trescothick, the England and Somerset batsman, has announced his retirement from international cricket. Having suffered from a stress-related illness since 2006 Trescothick, 32, doesn't feel able to return to the high-pressure world of international cricket.
"I have tried on numerous occasions to make it back to the international stage and it has proved a lot more difficult than I expected," he told the Somerset website. "I want to extend my playing career for as long as possible and I no longer want to put myself through the questions and demands that go with trying to return to the England team."
It cuts short his career on 76 Test matches, in which he made 5825 runs and struck 14 hundreds, including a top score of 219. He was just as valuable, if not more effective, in one-day cricket where he was able to capitalise on his natural power and timing. In 123 one-dayers, he cracked 4335 runs at 37.37 - second only to Alec Stewart as England's leading one-day run-scorer.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time playing for England, and I am very proud of having been selected for 76 Test matches and over 120 ODIs. It has been great privilege to represent my country and I am grateful to the game of cricket for giving me the opportunity to excel at a sport that I enjoy so much.

Argh - wonderful, solid, reliable opener. Never the most flashy, but always did the job without too much pomp 'n' pride 'n' pride - solid average of 40-45 maintained throughout his relatively short-ish career , opening was never easy yet he was perhaps England's star batsman over the years.
Shame he had to go.
Can someone explain the type of stress he had?

Very sad news. I was a fan of his batting. He is a nice person too. He knows when to quit; unlike our Bashar.
And Allah Knows the best

Now that's a total bummer. I really enjoyed him taking bowlers on, in his own unique ways. Best of luck to you Marcus ...
