Tim Bresnan ruled out of Ashes after back stress fracture

AFP, LONDON

England pace bowling all-rounder Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of the remainder of the Ashes and the rest of the home international season with a stress fracture in his lower back, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced on Thursday.

Bresnan starred with both bat and ball as England beat Australia by 74 runs in the fourth Test at Chester-le-Street on Monday as they went 3-0 up with one to play and so won a third straight Ashes series.

He took the key wicket of David Warner to pave the way for Stuart Broad’s match-winning spell.

“England and Yorkshire pace bowler Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of the remainder of the international season with a stress fracture in his lower back,” an ECB statement said.
