Cape Town - Somerset and former England opening batsman Marcus Trescothick is heading home from the lucrative Champions League Twenty20 in India after a recurrence of the stress-related illness which has plagued his career.

According to the BBC Website, Tresothick will play no further part in the competition which has seen his county side progress to the second phase.

"Marcus has made a great effort to travel to India," said Somerset director of cricket Brian Rose to the BBC.

"Regrettably it has not worked out for him and he has travelled back to England to rejoin his family."

"He's probably about 80-85% but, in these particular games, every game is critical and you need people at 100%.

"Marcus admitted a couple of days ago that he wasn't 100% so that's fair enough.

Trescothick’s form in the competition has reflected his feelings, scoring only 17 runs in Somerset’s two games so far in the tournament.
