Kochi: Jan 12, 2013

James Tredwell is high on confidence after assisting England to victory in the first One-Day International against India on Friday at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium.

When Tredwell was asked whether Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar’s performances in the Test series inspired him to do well in the first ODI, he replied, “Absolutely. You see them and you want to emulate them, but one-day cricket is completely different so it’s a different set of skills and a different approach.”

Swann took 20 wickets from four Test matches and Panesar took 17 wickets from three Test matches.

“The way I look at it is I have to keep improving, putting performances in when I do get the chance and show what I can do in training. Hopefully I can get a few games along the way,” Tredwell added.

Tredwell, who often has to sit on the bench to let regular spinner Swann play, is happy to enjoy his role as the main spinner against India in the ongoing series.

“I have an opportunity here to play a few games and show what I can do and hopefully keep my hat in the ring. I was just trying to stem the flow of runs and build up pressure on the batsmen, not allow them to swing the ball over the top but it is pleasing to take wickets in a game like this,” Tredwell was quoted as saying by Yahoo Cricket.

He added, “I guess they do mean more, because India are notoriously good players of spin but any international player you come up against is going to be a good player so to get any of them out is a string to your bow.”

England will face India in the second ODI at Kochi on Tuesday.
