Bresnan eyes starting spot

With Stuart Broad out of the rest of this Ashes series, the question remains as to who will take over from the injured fast bowler. Whisperings are emerging that Tim Bresnan could be the man who edges the race, ahead of Chris Tremlett and Yorkshire team-mate Ajmal Shazad.

While cricket betting pundits note that Tremlett would have offered England extra bounce on the bowler friendly WACA pitch, Bresnan will be a more solid option in the line-up as well as offering similar batting talents to Broad. Bresnan will need to produce the same sort of economical figures as Broad, who went for barely two an over during the opening two Tests.

Bresnan is a typical Yorkshire player and is sure to leave everything he’s got on the pitch in Perth. The all-rounder isn’t afraid of getting mixed up in a little chest pumping if the situation calls for it and he won’t be overawed by the occasion at the WACA.

A victory here at the WACA and England will make sure they retain the Ashes, Bresnan won’t have too much time to find his feet if he is picked. The Aussie’s will be likely to burst out of the tracks in Perth and they will be sure to attack any weakness they can find in the England team.

The pitch in Perth will suit Bresnan’s pace and the Yorkshireman also has the ability to get some swing out of the ball, as well as bowling “a heavy ball”.

Bresnan impressed those studying the latest cricket odds on the tour of Bangladesh last winter but was unable to build on that impressive start. He’ll have the chance to prove to the management that he still has the ability to perform at this level.
