The 32 years old batsman said,

“I won’t return to the Test game until later in the year as I continue to prioritize what I want to achieve. I needed a bit of time away from the game, and I need some more, I’m just not ready yet. Playing three formats all of a sudden felt like the world was on top of my shoulders. There is a lot of cricket, but my priorities have changed.”

England will have power-packed tournament or cricket series against South Africa that will include three ODIs, three T20 and four Tests against South Africa between May and August.

He further said,

“It’s not an easy decision. I’ve played for 12 odd years now. The family has changed, my roles have changed. A lot of things have played a role but I would like to think it’s not the end. I’m hoping to be back playing Test cricket in preparation for the series against India (in November), followed by Australia (in February 2018). I’m not committing to it, but that’s the plan.”
