Trescothick has been playing since 1993. This is his final season. He is not playing the last match but came in as a substitute. And is fielding at bat-pad despite his age (43). The England batsman quit international cricket in 2006 due to depression but played domestic cricket until today. He was part of the famous 2005 Ashes that England won.
