Chris Adams backs ‘softie’ Chris Tremlett to rough up Australia

Chris Adams, the Surrey manager, says Tremlett should not be underestimated simply because he is not the type to shout in batsmen’s faces. And if the fast bowler is picked to replace Stuart Broad for the third Test in Perth next week, Adams is backing him to succeed.

“He can be a horrendous person to face, as awful as any bowler I have faced in my career,” Adams said.

“You don’t have to be a nasty, fasty, shouty, up-and-at-’em kind of character to make life very unpleasant for the opposition. I would rather take his type over someone who comes in and shouts and screams at everyone.”
