Tredwell glad for break from Kent action

England

England spinner James Tredwell has been on the sidelines for Kent in recent weeks, dropped from the four-day side after some poor performances, but feels the break has done him good.

England spinner James Tredwell has been on the sidelines for Kent in recent weeks, dropped from the four-day side after some poor performances, but feels the break has done him good.

Tredwell has been England's go-to spinner since Graeme Swann's retirement, particularly in the shorter formats, and he feels the constant one-day action may have affected his longer game form.

Tredwell told BBC Radio Kent: "I picked up a few habits from playing a lot of one-day cricket, not only over the winter but over the last two years really.

"To have a bit of time on my technique, which will hopefully aid me in all forms of the game, is beneficial.

"I'm in the international team and I want to take care of that as well as perform to my best for Kent. It has been nice to have time to myself and work to try and get things right.

"I think I've performed pretty well in one-day cricket over the last 12 to 18 months for England. Sometimes you have to employ different skills in one-day cricket than you do in four-day.

"Perhaps certain habits from playing one-day cricket tend to creep in sometimes and you have got to iron them out."

While his form for Kent has been poor, Tredwell played against Scotland in a one-off ODI earlier this month and took four wickets. He will be a likely starter for the ODI series against Sri Lanka too.
