Video - 'People Want To Watch Twenty Overs Of Explosions'

Ahead of the start of the Friends Life t20 this week, Somerset captain says that the fast-paced, frenetic nature of the game is like '20 overs of explosions'.

He helped Somerset lift the trophy in 2005 but despite three further visits to the final, they are still searching for a repeat victory, something which is hopeful of putting right this year.

"We've been very consistent as a team, Somerset, for a number of years now (but) never quite crossing the line in the right position," he said.

"So yes, I'm very hopeful. We've got a strong team. Some great young players and some great internationals in our team."

He added that England's defeat to India in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 would have hurt the side but he expects them to bounce back in time for the Ashes.

"They're obviously hurt badly that they didn't quite pick it up...I think they'll come back strong," Trescothick, who played 76 Tests and 123 One-Day International for England, said.

"Once they have time to sit down and have a think what's gone on and then regroup, I think they'll come back fighting hard."
