London: Jul 29, 2014

English county club Warwickshire’s director of cricket Dougie Brown has said that Jonathan Trott is making good progress recovering from a stress-related illness but has insisted that an England return is not an immediate priority. Trott has hit 106 and 78 in his last two Bears matches after coming back into cricket last month.

Brown said that there is nothing to suggest that he is not going in the right direction, and added that currently Trott is with them and would be for a period of time, The BBC reported.

Trott’s international career has been on hold since he returned midway through England’s 5-0 Ashes defeat in Australia last November because of the illness. The batsman made a first-class comeback at the start of the current season for Warwickshire before being forced to take another break after suffering a recurrence of the problem.The South Africa-born batsman returned for a second time in June and, after making runs in the Bears’ second XI, Trott is finding form in the first team.

Trott’s century in the County Championship against Sussex was his first since last summer and the batsman followed that up by top scoring in the Bears ‘ four-run win over Middlesex in their opening One-Day Cup match four days later. Brown said that Trott back to his old self is one of the best batsmen in world cricket, but added that he is probably not there yet. But, Brown further added that what they can judge Trott on is what they are seeing and he has played some really important innings for them.
