Langer thinks Trescothick could turn up for Ashes decider

7:45 am on 12 August 2009

The former Australian opening batsman and current Somerset county captain Justin Langer reckons his Somerset teammate Marcus Trescothick could be tempted out of his self-imposed international retirement for next week's Ashes cricket decider.

Trescothick has battled a stress-related illness that has prematurely ended his international career, but Langer says the big left-hander could play at The Oval if his return was conditional on him not having to make himself available for overseas tours.

Trescothick has been in top form this year, and Langer says the Oval is his favourite ground.
