Former England batsman Jonathan Trott is hopeful of making a come back into the International team after being named in the England Lions squad for their tour of South Africa in 2015.

Trott had to quit the England’s Ashes tour of Australia midway last November due to stress-related illness. But he has made a successful return to action with his English county Warwickshire and has been awarded with a place in the provisional 14-man Lions squad. Jonathan Trott performed extremely well for Warwickshire in the second half of the 2014 season, scoring four centuries. 

During an interview with BBC, Trott said: 

I seem to have found myself in a situation where I’m enjoying cricket again. I still have aspirations to play for England. If I do hopefully play for England again, I’ve got to earn my place back.” 

“I’ve had that mentality playing for Warwickshire this year and thoroughly enjoyed my season with them; mainly for the second half of the season, admittedly.” 

The England Lions squad will tour South Africa in January and February, playing two four-day matches and five 50-over matches against South Africa A. Jonathan Trott will only feature in the two four-day games at the start of the tour.
