Bio

If statistics are anything to go by, then England simply must pick Tim Bresnan. Incredibly, the side won thirteen matches in a row when Bresnan played, and only tasted defeat in game number fifteen.

The powerful all-rounder forced his way into the limited-overs side in 2006 where he was subsequently slaughtered by Sri Lanka in a two over spell that cost 20 runs.

While the T20 debut wasn’t great, Bresnan redeemed himself two days later in his first ODI, where he picked up the wicket of Chaminda Vaas.

Bresnan has been a mainstay in the English limited-overs’ sides, with his aggressive bowling and powerful late hitting proving a lethal combination.

The Yorkshire local has taken 88 wickets in 69 ODI appearances, while he has snared 70 wickets from 77 T20 internationals.

After biding his time for close to eight seasons in the County competition, Bresnan finally earned a spot in the English Test side during the 2009 series against the West Indies.

It was a very quiet debut for the all-rounder, who didn’t bowl in the first innings, and finished wicketless from his seven overs as the West Indies were forced to follow-on.

He had more success the following year in Bangladesh, where he finished with seven wickets for the tour, and also hit a career best 91. He would later score a 90 to leave him with the unenviable record of being dismissed multiple times in the nervous nineties.

Bresnan made himself known to the Australian public when he made his Ashes debut in the fourth Test at the MCG in 2010. It was a meteoric rise for Bresnan, who was unfazed by the occasion. He picked up the wickets of Phil Hughes and Brad Haddin, before tearing through the hosts in the second innings. He removed the big three of Shane Watson, Ricky Ponting and Mike Hussey, before sealing the win with the wicket of Ben Hilfenhaus.

Another impressive display in the fifth Test saw him pick up five wickets for the match, including the scalps of four top-order batsmen.

The booming all-rounder hasn’t featured in the national side recently as he continues to recover from a number of minor injuries. However, his return will be a welcome boost ahead of the gruelling ten Test campaign.

Clarke puts spin on Cook

Michael Clarke has brazenly dared England to play two spinners in the second Commonwealth Bank Ashes Test as Australia aims to carry the mental edge gained in Brisbane into tomorrow's match in Adelaide.

Cook coy on selections

England are yet to name a side for Thursday's second Commonwealth Bank Ashes Test but skipper Alastair Cook says a recall for spinner Monty Panesar is definitely under consideration.
