London, Oct 17(ANI): Former England captain Michael Vaughan reckons that Marcus Trescothick can still be one of the indispensable players for any county team despite his stress-related illness.

Trescothick was first troubled by the illness during England's tour of India in 2005-06 and later the illness forced him to quit the following winter's Ashes trip just two weeks after leaving home.

"Marcus deserves a huge amount of credit, it was a courageous decision for him even to try and go there to play. It's obviously not worked out, but I spoke to him and he's fine. It's not the first time this has happened, but at least he's given it a go," The Sun quoted Vaughan, as saying.

"I didn't speak to him about the details, I just called to make sure he was alright. It was obviously bad enough for him to come home and he knows what his own limits are. I don't think people realise what an effort it took for him even to go out there," he added.

Vaughan also believes that Trescothick loves his cricket, which had encouraged him to get back into the game, and said that the explosive batsman will carry on the way that he has been playing for Somerset. (ANI)
