Trott left the international circuit as he was battling from stress-related illness, which troubled him for a long time but the cricketer managed to stay afloat. The right-handed batsman, who has been a pillar in the England batting line-up, left their Ashes 2013-14 tour Down Under after the first Test.

Trott has so far played 49 Tests for England, scoring 3,763 runs at a splendid average of 46.45. He played his last Test for England back in November 2013, and certainly Trott will be the center of attraction in the Test series in West Indies.

The 33-year-old top-order batsman, who has amassed 3,763 Test runs at an average of 46.45, has not played for England since November 2013 at the start of the last Ashes series. He spent the entire season away from the sport.

Trott returned to action in the last season in the English County circuit playing for Warwickshire, for whom he scored three centuries as he garnered 628 runs in First-Class cricket at an impressive average of 44.85. Trott was then named in the England Lions’ side for their Test series against South Africa A, wherein he announced himself in brilliant form with a double century.

The right-hander is supposed to open the innings for England on his return to Test cricket, as Sam Robson was dropped following a poor series against India last season wherein the hosts trounced the tourists by a margin of 3-1 in five-Test series.
