Marcus Trescothick was one of England’s prolific run-scorer during his playing days. Having played 76 Tests, 123 ODIs and three T20Is, he was a nightmare for the oppositions. The Somerset-born batsman has over 10,000 runs at the international circuit to go with 26 centuries and 50 half-centuries. He retired from the highest level way back in 2008 owing to stress-related issues.

His last international appearance was in an ODI versus Pakistan at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. Currently, Trescothick is plying his trade for Somerset only in the first-class format. He doesn’t play the List A and T20 format anymore. Recently, he played three games in the County Championship and hasn’t been able to make an impact with 84 runs at an average of 16.80.

In four of those innings, he got to double figures. His top score of 37 came against Cardiff MCCU in Taunton. His team is next scheduled to play versus Surrey The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton from Tuesday, May 14 onwards. The veteran has over 26,000 runs in first-class cricket and his team will be hoping for the veteran to step up and deliver.

In the meantime, a video has been doing the rounds where the 43-year-old Marcus Trescothick slipping twice while running between the wickets. During a domestic game, a left-arm pacer pulled short delivery and the batsman pulled it.

At that time, Trescothick was at the non-striker’s end. While taking the first run, he lost balance and slipped. Even while turning for the second run, he slipped. The striker also almost completed the second run but returned after seeing Trescothick on the ground. Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan watched it and couldn’t stop himself from having a go. He trolled Trescothick, also his former teammate and even reposted the video on his Instagram page.

He captioned the video, “This will not be bettered this year … The Art of running between the wickets by @marcustrescothick !!!!!!,”
