Jonathan Trott has been named in the 16-man England squad for the three-Test tour of West Indies in April and May. Alastair Cook captains the side with Durham all-rounder Ben Stokes also earning a recall after missing out on the World Cup squad.
Trott, 33, last represented his country in November 2013 before leaving the Ashes tour in Australia due to a stress-related condition.
The Warwickshire batsman, who has scored 3,763 runs in 49 Test appearances for England, took another break from the game in April 2014 but after undergoing treatment with renowned sports psychologist Dr Steve Peters, he returned later that year before impressing with England Lions in South Africa in January.
Moeen Ali (abdominal strain) and Chris Woakes (foot) have both missed out due to injuries suffered during England's miserable World Cup campaign, while there are call-ups for the uncapped trio of Adil Rashid, Adam Lyth and Mark Wood.
Fast bowler Steve Finn is another notable absentee after an uninspiring campaign in Australia and New Zealand where England failed to escape the group stage. England's first test against West Indies begins on 13 April in Antigua.
England squad for West Indies tour: Alastair Cook (capt, Essex), Adam Lyth (Yorkshire), Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire), Gary Ballance, Joe Root (both Yorkshire), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Ben Stokes (Durham), Jos Buttler (wk, Lancashire), Jonathan Bairstow (wk), Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett (all Yorkshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), James Anderson (Lancashire), Chris Jordan (Sussex), Mark Wood (Durham), James Tredwell (Kent).
