Chris Tremlett will spearhead Hampshire's attack against table-topping Nottinghamshire as a capped player tomorrow - and with his England ambitions on hold.

Southampton-born Tremlett has taken 112 wickets in 35 first class matches for his home county since making his debut four years ago.

He was rewarded for his efforts with the presentation of his Hampshire cap before yesterday's abandoned totesport National League match against Kent at the Rose Bowl

Tremlett was watched by England chairman of selectors David Graveney at Bristol on Saturday on the recommendation of Shane Warne - but the Hampshire paceman admits his main priority this year is to stay fit, after injuries have marred recent seasons.

after taking 17 wickets at 19.11 in his first four championship games of the season.

But this week he is concentrating on Hampshire's biggest game of the season - a top- of-the-table match against Nottinghamshire, which starts at the Rose Bowl tomorrow (11am).

The 22-year-old said: "It's an honour to be a capped Hampshire player.

"I've worked pretty hard over the last four years but I'm not really thinking about playing for England too much.

"They're big words when someone of Shane Warne's stature says that he rates me that highly but my goal for the season is just to stay fit.

"I'm keeping my feet on the ground. I'm just focusing on playing well for Hampshire.

"If something happen I'll take it from there but at the end of the day I've got to perform and prove that I've got the potential."

Tremlett missed last week's National League win against Gloucestershire with tendonitis in his shoulder but has otherwise been injury free after a gruelling winter concentrating on his fitness in Sydney.

"I had the hip injury last year and hardly bowled during the winter," he said.

"but I'm a lot stronger in my lower limbs and am getting a lot more bounce this year as a result.

"I'm bowling pain free, which is a relief, and hopefully things can stay that way.

"It's still early on in the season but I feel fitter than I ever have been.

"I'm looking forward to later in the summer when the wickets will be harder as I should be able to get even more bounce.

"But at the moment we've got a big game against Notts to concentrate on.

"They're top of the table but we've played brilliant cricket in the four games we've played and hopefully we can get another win."
