Batsman Jonathan Trott is ready to return to international cricket, if required by England for November and December's tour of England and next year's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Batsman Jonathan Trott is ready to return to international cricket, if required by England for November and December's tour of England and next year's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Trott left the tour of Australia late last year due to a stress-related illness. The first half of 2014 brought a punctuated comeback, but he has since gathered a promising stretch of form – and confidence – at county level.

"The ECB and I have had our final get-together. I've been signed off by the ECB. Whatever comes along with regards to selection, maybe. I'm not putting too much pressure on myself," Trott told the <i>BBC</i>.

"There's been some challenging times. Some tough times. But I've been available a while, for the last month or two, I suppose, in terms of selection and I'm enjoying my cricket.

The England and Wales Cricket Board awarded central contracts recently. While all-rounder Chris Woakes and wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler were on the list, the exiled Kevin Pietersen and Trott were not.

"I've been feeling good for a while now. It's been great going back to Warwickshire. The last couple of months with Warwickshire have been fantastic," added Trott.

"I'm doing my best to play as much good cricket as I have got left in me and to win stuff for the team."
