Former England batsman Jonathan Trott will retire at the end of the season.

Warwickshire have announced Trott's decision to bring down the curtain on a 17-year, 52-Test career.

The 37-year-old joined Warwickshire in 2002, notching a century on his first-class debut in 2003.

Trott helped England scoop Ashes series victories in 2009, 2011 and 2013.

"I've been fortunate to have enjoyed a great career with Warwickshire and England and I am very grateful for all of the support that I have received from my fellow players, coaches and management who I have worked with," said Trott.

"Choosing to retire at the end of the season is something that I have spoken about at length with my family and this is now the right time to look at the next chapter of my career.

"Warwickshire CCC is a very special club and I've been immensely proud to have worn the Bear and Ragged Staff throughout my career. We've made a strong start to the 2018 season and I hope that I can make a major contribution to more success in my final year at Edgbaston as a player."
