Cricket News sort by James Cullum Tredwell

By no stretch of the imagination are England among the favourites for this year's World Cup.

Kent Off-spinner James Tredwell will have the honour of leading England in the Second and Final T20I against New Zealand at The Oval this evening.

Hosts England entered into the Finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 after a cakewalk victory over the Proteas who yet again choked in a major tournament. It was a disastrous batting show from South Africa that turned the big Semi-Final in a one-sided affair.

First it was Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann then Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez and now James Tredwell. Indian batsmen are traditionally known to be great players of spin, who even gave the great Sharne Warne a harrowing time when the leggie was at his peak.

England defeated India by 9 runs in the opening ODI at Rajkot. It was a high scoring contest with England setting up India a target of 326 and then winning it by 9 runs.

Hosts England have taken a crucial 2-1 lead by defeating South Africa comfortably by 6 wickets with 20 balls to spare in the Fourth ODI at Lord’s on Sunday.

England have decided to rest their premium spinner Graeme Swann for the remaining three ODIs against South Africa. Swann of late has been having a troubled elbow in his right arm which might need surgery sometime perhaps after the World Twenty20.
