    Trescothick to miss England tours

    http://cricketweb.net/article.php?Ca...ewsIDAuto=4271

    Good decision, imo. He proved with the Ashes that he's got more desire to play than common sense about what's good for him. He should still make it permament, though. A recurring "stress-related illness" makes him unreliable, whatever it is.

    It is, sadly, a long way back for him now. A shame, as he has been a very fine player for England.

    Time for England to completely forget about him. I could understand it if he rules himself out for long tours, but ruling himself out of short tours when he travels around for Somerset anyway somewhat kills any sympathy I have.

    As far as I understand, it's not the actual act of travelling away from home, but the stress of being on tour with England for months at a time and being expected to perform for your country etc. Hence stress-related illness.

    Indeed. Otherwise all he'd need were a paper bag and problem solved.

    It doesn't kill my sympathy. But I agree, England should plan without him. We should stop hearing that 'Trescothick is missing' when talking about the current ODI openers.

    Sad, but probably the right decision.

    He's only 31, so still has plenty of international cricket ahead.

    Fair play to Tres. Can't have been an easy decision. Our ODI team will doubtless continue to miss him, but his health must come first.

    A real pity that he's been affected like this as he strikes me as one of nature's good guys.

    Not if he can't tour.

    yep..england should no longer continue to make him part of their plans now. Making him part of their plans is followed by him rejecting them....leading to disappointment which can affect the mental balance of the team. Whether im a supporter of england or not does not matter when i say that it is quite awful to see. I remember making a thread abt whether Tresco should be dropped or not...well, i defo believe now that he should be dropped from their plans and england should move on.

    If Strauss can start scoring (or continue scoring, as I think he's passed 50 in the last two tests now), then at least we're not missing him too much in Tests, but damn shame tbh

    But he's put himself in the position were he will never be able to go into any form of international cricket ever again without people, most likely not least of all himself, worrying about what state of mind he is in. That will increase the pressure on him, which is the cause of the term "stress-related illness" in the first place. Then he becomes a liability.
