England batsman set to resume career

7:47 am on 27 February 2014

England's top order batsman Jonathan Trott is rearing to go again, and he'll resume his first class cricket career with his county side Warwickshire in April.

The South African-born batsman left England's dismal Ashes tour of Australia last year with a stress-related illness.

But the chairman of his benefit committee Dennis Amiss says Trott's still very hungry and wants to continue succeeding in both county and international cricket.

Amiss, himself a former England test batsman, believes Trott's problem was essentially burnout.
