Profile

James Tredwell's unassuming manner gives him the air of a Rotary Club chairman rather than an international sportsman, but for his mild-mannered ways he has quietly built a decent cricketing career with both Kent and England. He had racked up almost a decade of unswerving county service by the time England gave him an ODI debut against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2010 and his offspin - bowled in a more old-fashioned, slower style than is the norm among many of his international contemporaries - has given England stout service. Such is Tredwell's unfashionable air that he was content to talk ahead of an England tour of his hobby making home-made jam and chutney, and imagined packing a couple of jars to help him through his latest overseas assignment. In Kent in particular, they valued his gentle talents, backed up by excellent close catching and some useful lower-order batting. As Vic Marks wrote in The Guardian: "James Tredwell is not and never will be a superstar. He is the journeyman's journeyman and a fine antidote to the celebrity cricketer."
