Tremlett ruled out of India tour
Tremlett made a promising start to his international career
Chris Tremlett will not be available for England's tour to India after surgery on his right knee and hip.

The 24-year-old seamer also missed the recent tour to Pakistan and his father Tim, director of cricket at Hampshire, says he will not play until April.

He told BBC Sport: "Chris had the operations before Christmas and is making good progress.

"He was disappointed he wasn't able to go to Pakistan but it's important to get these injuries right."

Tremlett was called up for the triangular one-day series with Australia and Bangladesh last summer after impressive form for Hampshire.

He played in three of the games, taking five wickets, and was also named in the squad for the first four Ashes Tests - without making the starting XI in any of them.

The target now is to get in shape for the next county campaign, with home series against Pakistan and Sri Lanka series in mind.

"He's flying out at the end of next week to Australia, where our physio is based and a couple of our players are doing rehab," Tim added.

"Chris will be joining them in Sydney and will now focus on getting fit and strong for the start of the new season."
