I`m not ready says Trescothick

England opening batsman Marcus Trescothick has stated that he is not ready to return to international cricket following his stress related illness.

Trescothick has had a good start to the English domestic season and most recently hit 185* for Somerset.

Trescothick commented to the BBC saying “I don’t think I’m in contention for a Test call-up. Nothing has changed compared to the last few weeks – I’m just going to go about my business playing for Somerset.”

Trescothick went onto say “A few more knocks like that and, if I continue with that sort of form for a long period of time, then we will have to think about it again.”

“I haven’t officially told the selectors I’m not available but I spoke to Michael Vaughan last week, and said where I am.”

Former England wicket-keeper Alec Stewart said any talk of “fast-tracking” Trescothick back into the team would not benefit England in the long term, and said he should be given as much time as he needs to recover from his medicial condition.
