PERTH - Towering paceman Chris Tremlett will get an early chance to press for an Ashes Test place as England open their tour Down Under against a Western Australia Chairman's XI Thursday. Captain Alastair Cook says a place is up for grabs in pace attack behind first-choice quicks Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad and has given the incentive to Tremlett, Steven Finn and Boyd Rankin to go after it. Tremlett has had past success bowling on Australian wickets and took 17 wickets in three Tests on England's last tour. "The first week or so everyone is a little tentative and going through the gears," he said. "But when I go into the warm-up games and Test matches, I'll be throwing myself into it and not holding back because I want to give myself the best chance of playing in the first Test."–AFP
