London: England's star batsman Jonathan Trott has admitted that alcohol almost ruined his cricketing career.
Trott said that he restricts himself to only an occasional beer or wine and drinking night-outs are off-limits for him.
"I used to go nuts and it affected the image people had of me. It used to cloud my judgement, not just that night, but for days afterwards. I still have the occasional beer or glass of wine but, when it comes to nights out, you probably won't find me around them," Trott was quoted as saying by The Cricketer.
