Jonathan Trott announces retirement plans

Former England batsman Jonathan Trott will retire at the end of the season.

Warwickshire announced Trott's decision to bring down the curtain on a 17-year, 52-Test career on Thursday evening.

The 37-year-old joined Warwickshire in 2002, notching a century on his first-class debut in 2003.

Trott helped England claim Ashes series victories in 2009, 2011 and 2013.

Stress and mental health problems forced Trott to take two breaks from cricket, in 2013 and 2014.

But he still recorded nine Test centuries, and currently boasts 17,750 first-class runs.

"Choosing to retire at the end of the season is something that I have spoken about at length with my family and this is now the right time to look at the next chapter of my career," Trott said.
