Somerset batsman Marcus Trescothick is to return home from India after suffering a recurrence of a stress-related illness during his side's Champions League Twenty20 campaign.

The club confirmed that the left-hander would be playing no further part in Somerset's tournament, which has seen them get through the initial group stage into the Super Eights.

"Somerset County Cricket Club is delighted to proceed to the Super Eights of the Champions League," a statement from Director of Cricket Brian Rose posted on their homepage ( said.

"As you are all aware, Marcus Trescothick has made a great effort to travel to India to attend this exciting tournament. Regrettably it has not worked out for him regarding his personal well-being and he has travelled back to England to rejoin his family.

"The Club and all his team mates have fully appreciated this effort and personal commitment and look forward to further success on his behalf."

Trescothick first suffered stress-related problems when England toured India in 2005/6, subsequently retiring from international cricket.
