Yorkshire's Tim Bresnan is hoping he'll be fit for the Ashes tour to Australia, despite being sidelined for the rest of the summer with a stress fracture in his lower back. Today the all-rounder was at a supermarket in Pudsey in his role as an ambassador for Asda Kwik Cricket.
Bresnan played an important part with both bat and ball in the series-clinching victory in the 4th Test at Chester-le-Street earlier this week, but the injury means he'll miss next week's final Test against the Aussies at The Oval.
Yorkshire & England star Tim Bresnan has signed a new contract that will keep him at Headingley until 2016. The Pontefract-born all-rounder is expected to play a major part in the Ashes series against Australia this summer, alongside his Yorkshire teammates Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.
Bresnan becomes the sixth Yorkshire player this summer to sign a new deal. He follows Moin Ashraf, Jonny Bairstow, Gary Ballance, Steve Patterson and Azeem Rafiq, who are now committed to the Club for the foreseeable future.
