England fast bowler Tim Bresnan will travel to the USA to undergo a second elbow operation which ruled him out of England’s tour of New Zealand.
Bresnan had his first operation on the injury at the back-end of 2011, but has never regained top form since. The Yorkshire fast bowler has appeared down on pace in recent months and has lacked a wicket taking ability because of this.
Bresnan will travel to America in the next week, and it is hoped that he will be fully fit for the English summer. England host New Zealand for two Test matches before the Australians arrive for a five match series. Sandwiched in between this, the Champions Trophy takes place in England in which Bresnan will be hoping to feature.
The 27 year-old has played in 18 Test matches for England having taken 57 wickets at an average of 32.54. Bresnan has also played in 69 ODI’s, with an economy rate of 5.40.
