Cape Town - Former England opening batsman Marcus Trescothick is still going strong.
At 40-years-old, the left-hander confirmed that he will be playing another season of first class cricket in England's County Championship, where he will represent Somerset.
Trescothick had been captaining Somerset, a club that he first turned out for in 1993, for the past six years but he will relinquish that responsibility in 2016.
Australian Chris Rogers will take over the four-day captaincy while Jim Allenby will lead in the shorter formats.
"I have loved being captain of Somerset. It has been a tremendous privilege and honour to lead this great cub over many years but now is the right time for change," Trescothick told Somerset's official website.
"I will be giving Chris and Jim my unconditional support, as well as focusing on scoring as many runs as I can in the season ahead.
"I would like to thank all of the players, coaches and members for their support during my tenure as the club captain."
Trescothick played the last of his 76 matches for England in 2006. He scored 5825 runs at an average of 43.79.
