Andrew Flintoff thinks that the English top order batsman Jonathan Trott who left the Ashes tour and returned home after the Brisbane test match due to stress illness will be able to make his comeback to international cricket.
Trott was bounced out by Mitchell Johnson in both the innings of the Brisbane test match.
After that game, the England coach Andy Flower announced that the Warwickshire right hander would not play any more games in the series and would return home immediately as he was struggling with stress illness.
Flower also said that Trott had not discovered that problem on the Ashes tour. He had been struggling with that since a while.
Some people believe that it would be very difficult for Trott to be back playing for England again, but, Flintoff doesn’t have the same opinion. He reckons that Trott is one of those guys who are mentally very strong and people will see him in England jersey again.
Talking to the reporters about Trott recently, Flintoff said, “I have got no doubt in my mind that he will come back at some point of time. He is a tough bloke.”
Trott had been in great form in the ICC Champions Trophy which was played a few months back and he was expected to play a big part for England in the last Ashes series, but, he couldn’t do that. The Aussie quicks exposed his vulnerability against the rising deliveries in that series.
However, he made his way down under and looked in good form in the warm up games, but, in Brisbane, he was up against the sheer pace of Mitchell Johnson and he couldn’t handle that well. He got completely rattled and that would surely have made his mental state even worse.
