Chris Tremlett is confident that he will be able to fully recover from his recent back surgery and hopes that this surgery will help him to play in the top level of international cricket for at least another six years.

The fast bowler has been somewhat of an elusive enigma for the England national team, brilliant in some matches but utterly rubbish in others. Tremlett was in a rich vein of form, as evident in the series against India, before he injured his back again.

According to the fast bowler, he was having problems with the lumbar discs number four and five and at one point of time he was even told that giving up training in favour of rest would more or less ensure he returned to the fold of the England Cricket Team, fit and strong.

All fast bowlers tend to suffer from bad backs but Tremlett, being 6 ft 8 inches tall, has seen the stress multiply over time and surgery was probably the only way to go for him.

Once the back problem took too much of a toll on his bowling during the first Test of the three match Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates, he opted for surgery and has been out of action ever since.

According to the Tremlett it would be May before he is bowling in the nets again and there is also the matter of regaining match fitness after such a long injury layoff. The latest in-play cricket betting odds reckon he won’t return for England until June’s India test.

Tremlett is confident that he will be able to overcome the injury crisis and return to top form, thereby returning to the England Cricket Team with strong performances for his county side.
