Marcus Trescothick has been forced to return home from the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in India following a recurrence of a stress-related illness. The former England batsman will play no further part in Somerset's campaign after being given permission to fly back to Britain.
The 33-year-old retired from international cricket last year after suffering problems on previous tours.
Somerset director of cricket Brian Rose said: "As you are all aware, Marcus Trescothick has made a great effort to travel to India to attend this exciting tournament.
"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."
