May 3, 2015: The 34 year old English batsman confirmed that he retires from international cricket following the series against West Indies. He returned to test cricket after 18 months after leaving the Ashes tour with a stress-related illness.

Troot who played 52 test matches, 68 one day internationals and  7 T20 internationals for England said it was very tough for him to make the decision. He confirmed he will play for his domestic side Warwickshire.

Troot has 3,835 runs in 52 Tests, 2819 runs in 68 ODIs, and 138 runs in 7 T20. He started his international career with a century against Australia in the Ashes series. His highest score was 226 against Bangladesh in Lords in 2010. He was also honoured by ICC player of the year in 2011.

Trott left the 2013-14 Ashes series in Australia after the first Test defeat in Brisbane. He was out in the both innings by Mitchell Johnson.

Troot said that his game is not at the level that it should be to play for England. Many cricketers said that its the right time for him to quit international cricket.
