Marcus Trescothick has announced his retirement from international cricket.
The 32-year-old has been suffering from a stress-related illness which makes travelling abroad difficult.
The former England opener, who played in 76 Tests and 123 one-day games, said he was retiring now so that the England team could plan their future.
He said: "It is in the best interests of all concerned the issue is put to rest so the England team can concentrate on moving forward."
