Chris Tremlett wants the grounds in England which are hosting Tests against India to produce lively pitches so that the hosts can make the most of home advantage with their strong pace attack. The matches will be played at Lord's, Edgbaston, Trent Bridge and The Oval and Tremlett hopes the visitors feel uncomfortable.
Tremlett said the recent surface at the Rose Bowl - where he took a career-best 6 for 48 against Sri Lanka to seal the Man-of-the-Series award - was the "perfect" Test pitch with help on offer for the bowlers, but runs available for quality batsmen as Ian Bell and Kumar Sangakkara showed with their hundreds. Tremlett knows England never get any favours from India in their home country and believes the same should apply in this series.
"I think that it's important when you are playing in your home Test matches that you should be able to produce the conditions you want," he told ESPNcricinfo at a Chance to Shine event in London. "India are used to playing in their conditions and we find it tough when we go over there so it's about trying to use things at home to our advantage.
