Yorkshire cricketer Tim Bresnan is eyeing a comeback to the England squad after recovering from a stress fracture on time as Alastair Cook and his men eye a comeback at Adelaide, reports the ECB.
Bresnan has been given the opportunity to play for the England Performance Programme squad and he lived up to expectations as he scored a half-century and bowled really well too.
The reward of course was that he was added to the England squad for the rest of the series.
The Yorkshire man in a recent conference said: “I'm excited to be back amongst it. I'm available for selection.
“It’s been quite frustrating travelling with the guys and doing all the prep, but knowing I probably wasn’t going to play any of the warm-up games.
“But I’m relishing the chance if I do get one at Adelaide.”
Bresnan also added that the hopes of him recovering well on time were always there and he also praised the team and the medical staff: “This was the plan from the outset.
“The medical team sat down then and said I may not be fit for Brisbane; there's a slim chance for Adelaide, but - if everything goes well - we can push for that.
“Andy (Flower) was happy with that, so brought me along as a spare member of the team.
“The lads have been great and pretty much treated me like one of the squad, so that’s been very good. Now I’m ready.”
Well. Going by the records, Bresnan has never lost a test match to Australia and has four out of five matches played against them. He is often considered as 'the lucky charm' of the team and could be in the playing 11 for Adelaide.
