Tim Bresnan Profile

A powerfully built allrounder, Tim Bresnan had been tipped for higher honours since he became the youngest player in 20 years to represent Yorkshire when he debuted in 2001. It was nearly a decade later that he really announced his arrival in the big-time, however, with a phenomenal performance in the fourth Test against Australia in Melbourne in December 2010. Called into the side as a replacement for Steven Finn, and with a remit to keep the runs down, he starred with a performance of skill, pace and unrelenting accuracy. First, he played a key role in bowling Australia out for 98 in the first innings, then he sealed England’s successful defence of the Ashes with 4 for 50 in the second innings.

Bresnan began his international career in the England Under-19 set-up and was part of the team in 2002 and 2003 – playing in two World Cups – the same years that he won the NBC Denis Compton Award for most promising Yorkshire player. All the potential took a few years to develop, but 2005 was an important year for him as he was given more responsibility in a transitional Yorkshire team. He was surprisingly overlooked for the England Academy, but started 2006 with a string of impressive performances with bat and ball, leading to a call-up to England’s new-look one-day squad to face Sri Lanka. However, he fell victim to the flashing blades of Jayasuriya and Co., then suffered injury in the second half of the season as he lost his place for the series against Pakistan.

A better allround summer in 2008 helped him catch the selectors eyes again, however, and he was called up late in the season for the one-day squad. But after a winter without any honours it appeared he would have to bide his time again before he was surprisingly named in the Test squad to face West Indies. He duly played in both matches, but such was England’s dominance it wasn’t until the final day of the series that he finally made his mark. He claimed his maiden Test wicket in the second innings and eventual figures of 3 for 45, as West Indies slumped to an innings defeat.

While he hovered around the fringes of the Test side thereafter injuries during England’s tour to Bangladesh in 2010 opened the door and he impressed showing good discipline and stamina in trying conditions. He then played an important role in delivering England the 2010 World Twenty20, showing good skill and unfailing ability to hit his straps early to give England control with the new ball, before returning at the end of the innings with steely death-bowling. While he is not yet certain of an automatic place in the full-strength Test team, his value as a squad player is second to none.
