Marcus Trescothick is hoping for more success at Headingley as England look to wrap up their Test series against Pakistan. England started the third leg of their campaign at the Leeds venue on Friday.


The Somerset left-hander has managed just 39 runs from his three innings so far but is now arriving at a ground where he has previously enjoyed plenty of success while on England duty against New Zealand in 2004.


The 30-year-old Trescothick said: ďOf course I want to get runs every time I go out to bat so it is not an ideal situation. I have not seen things as I would have liked to over the last couple of games or played as well as I can do. Hopefully it will kick back in this week. Some grounds you pick the ball up better. Whether this is one of those grounds I donít know but it always seems to work for me here. Itís always nice when you turn up at a ground knowing the last time you were here you did well,Ē said the only English batsman to reach three figures during England's recent 5-0 one-day series thrashing by Sri Lanka.
