Chris Tremlett was an immensely talented fast bowler. He was from a cricket family background as his father was a country cricketer and his Grandfather represented England in Test cricket. His height gave him an advantage of delivering nice bouncers and he almost picked a hattrick in the first encounter but in the hattrick ball, bails refused to fall.
