    Marcus Trescothick's autobiography

    Marcus Trescothick's story is quite depressing. He's probably (to date) England's best batsman in ODIs of all time, although Kevin Pietersen will undoubtedly get past him.

    Yet, he retired from international cricket earlier this year after opting out of a pre-season tour with Somerset. This wasn't the first time the stress/depression related illness had struck though.

    In 2006, before England's tour of India had really got underway, he quit the tour without any sort of explanation. He was then stupid enough to clarify in an interview a couple of months later that he did so because of a virus.

    Later that year, he didn't make it to England's squad for the ICC Champions Trophy in India. A couple of months later, he was picked for the Ashes in Australia, but he then suffered a recurrence of the same stress-related illness and returned home.

    He has now written about the illness in his autobiography, "Coming back to me". The 'News of the World' has published some extracts, as part of the serialization.
