Kolkata: Nicknamed 'bangers' by his Somerset teammates, he loves eating sausages and listening to music when not busy with cricket. He has now developed a fascination for batting on Indian tracks. Having landed in India with a reputation of being a consistent performer, England opener Marcus Trescothick lived up to his image with some solid batting in the Test series before Christmas and is now looking forward to have a go at the Indian bowlers in the One-dayers."The pitches here are very good for batting. Most of the best players in the world come from this part of the world. Everybody should come and play here as it is the best place to learn batting," Trescothick said during a tete-a-tete with reporters on Monday.Touted as a future England captain, the 26-year-old Somerset left-hander has not been bothered by such remarks and has just concentrated on his game. "I have not bothered about it nor am I thinking about this captaincy thing. Nasser Hussain is doing a great job and is perhaps one of the best captains at the moment. I keep learning from him." Trescothick, who has a decent average of 38.55 in the Test matches, said that he was quite satisfied with his performance in the Test series against India and found the pitches in all the three matches to be 'very good'."We didnt play well in the first Test but learnt how to handle the Indian spinners in the remaining Tests. I think we did quite well considering that we have a very inexperienced team," he added. PTI
