Marcus Trescothick, whose England career was ended by his inability to travel abroad, has returned home from India following a recurrence of a stress-related condition, his county Somerset said on Thursday.
Trescothick, 33, had been with Somerset playing in the Champions League tournament in what was his first trip to the sub-continent since stress resulted in him leaving England's tour of India in 2006.
Somerset director of cricket Brian Rose said: "As you are all aware, Marcus Trescothick has made a great effort to travel to India.
"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 has made repeated attempts to overcome the limitations that his condition, which he chronicled in an award-winning autobiography published last year, has put on his career.
He was due to take part in Somerset's pre-season trip to the Middle East in early 2008 but only got as far as London's Heathrow Airport.
Prior to that he travelled to Australia for the 2006/07 Ashes series but returned home after playing only one tour match.
The batsman has since concentrated on playing for Somerset and helped them qualify for the India trip by finishing as runners-up to Sussex in this year's Twenty20 Cup. He is due to take over the Somerset captaincy next year.
