Trott returns to first-class game with Warwickshire

England batsman Jonathan Trott made another return to first-class cricket on Sunday when he played for Warwickshire on the opening day of their county championship match against Nottinghamshire in Birmingham.

The 33-year-old flew home from England`s Ashes tour of Australia in November because of a stress-related illness and, after playing two first-class games for his county at the start of this season, he took another break.

Trott has been playing for Warwickshire`s Second XI and earlier this month turned out for the Birmingham Bears in a Twenty20 match.

The South African-born Trott, who has hit nine centuries for England in 49 tests, took one for 27 with his gentle part-time seamers as Nottinghamshire scored 397 for seven at Edgbaston.
