India line-up biggest challenge:Tremlett

London, July 20: England''s new bowling sensation Chris Tremlett regards the Indian batting line-up as the biggest challenge in world cricket currently but said his side can do well against the number one Test team.

"You have to say they are the biggest challenge (in world cricket). They generally get runs on the board. But we know if do the right things, we can bowl them out and get 20 wickets," said Tremlett, who in his short career of nine Tests has claimed 45 wickets at 25.20 average.

Tremlett described the Indian batting line-up as an attritional sort of players who wear the opposition down.

"They have great players; they play attritional, very patient cricket. You need to be very patient yourself to bowl them out," he said.

Tremlett, who is 6-feet-7-inches tall, made the Indian batsmen hop around a bit in Trent Bridge four years ago but feels he is a far better bowler at this stage of his career.

"I''ve improved since then. I am now consistently quicker.

I was raw then and still learning but now I feel more confident.

"The teams from the sub-continent are usually more susceptible to short-pitched stuff. But you need pitches and conditions to help," he said.
