Bresnan back with England
Tim Bresnan has rejoined the England squad in Dubai, having undergone fitness tests in Yorkshire on the elbow injury which ruled him out of the Test series with Pakistan.
Having undergone surgery to remove a bone fragment from his right elbow in November, the joint flared up on his return to bowling in the United Arab Emirates.
The seamer was initially ruled out of the tour opener versus an International Cricket Council Combined Associate and Affiliate XI and, on the day that England beat those opponents, went home for treatment.
It is hoped Bresnan will be available for four one-day and three Twenty20 internationals against Pakistan, starting a week tomorrow.
