Warwickshire County Cricket Club has signed a two-year contract with former England all-rounder Tim Bresnan. This contract of Tim Bresnan with Warwickshire will last until the end of the 2022 season. Tim Bresnan will initially join the club on the loan deal, which covers the remainder of the 2020 county season.
Bresnan was quoted on the official club website as saying,
“I’m thrilled to be joining Warwickshire. It’s a club that I’ve always admired, and I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed playing at Edgbaston with Yorkshire and England.”
“I’ve had some great conversations with Paul Farbrace about the way that he plans to take the club forwards, and I see this move as a great fit for both of us. I have still got a strong desire to continuing playing at the top level and to win. So hopefully, I can pass on a bit of my experience to the young players who are coming through,” he added
Tim Bresnan has been part of the Yorkshire team that won consecutive County Championship titles in 2014 and 2015.
Internationally he was the part of the England’s T20 World Cup-winning squad in 2010. He was also part of England’s 2010/11 team that won the Ashes in Australia for the first time in 24 years.
Warwickshire Sports Director Paul Farbrace said,
“With multiple trophies to his name, Tim is a winner and he knows exactly what it takes to perform and to ultimately succeed at the highest level.”
“He has vast experience of bowling in the PowerPlays and of closing out games with the ball and bat in both white-ball formats. In First-Class cricket, he has the ability to bowl long and challenging spells and also produce game-changing innings,” Farbrace added.
