Trescothick Willing to Come Out of Retirement


London, Aug 12: England batsman Marcus Trescothick may come out of his retirement if selectors give him a chance to play in the final Ashes Test at The Oval.

Trescothick said that he can play in the last match if it was just a one-off appearance.

"No one has spoken to me or said anything to me on the issue. If I was asked, I don't know. I'm retired. I'm done. If they threw questions at me, I would listen. But until they do I can't answer," Trescothick was quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph.

"I am just carrying on what I am doing at Somerset. Anything else is so hypothetical at the moment. It's always nice to be thought of. Of course it is. But people are talking about it more than I am thinking about it," he added.

National selector Geoff Miller indicated that Trescothick would not be considered unless he put his hand up for selection.

"Marcus has retired from top-level cricket ... and is still out of the international arena. The selectors and I have spoken to him two or three times this season to see if he is happy with his situation and he said he was. As such we would not consider him for selection for this Test," he said.

The 33-year-old Trescothick retired from international cricket 17 months ago after suffering a breakdown in India early in 2006 but continued to play for Somerset. He was in terrific form this season with 1,330 first-class runs at an average of 78.23, including six centuries.
