Tredwell plans to make mark
Kent spinner James Tredwell admitted he was disappointed to be left out of the England side at the start of the ODI series Down Under but has vowed to finish the series on a high. The former Kent skipper made his first competitive appearance of England’s tour Down Under as the Australians clinched the series by winning the third ODI in Sydney by seven wickets on Sunday. The 31-year-old said: “It was a bit disappointing not to play the first two. I guess I didn’t help myself at the back end of the English summer where there were a couple of games when I got targeted.” He added: “Over the period I wasn’t in Australia with the Test squad, I worked on things, some different plans and was looking forward to putting those into practice. Hopefully, over the next couple of games, I get the opportunity.” With England seeking to avoid another whitewash, the fourth ODI is at Perth on Friday morning (3.20am) with the final clash at Adelaide on Sunday. A three-match t20 series follows, starting in Hobart next Wednesday.
