Tim Bresnan will bring more experience to England's bowling attack after he was added to the squad for the NatWest one-day series

England have added Tim Bresnan to their squad for the NatWest Series against Sri Lanka after the Yorkshire all-rounder was passed fit following calf trouble.

Bresnan will join the squad at the Kia Oval ahead of tomorrow's first ODI and is available immediately having responded to treatment on the injury that kept him out of the three-match npower Test series and Saturday's stand-alone Natwest International Twenty20.

Bresnan's calf problem dates back to the winter tour of Australia. Having played an important role in securing the Ashes in the last two Tests, Bresnan flew home from the Commonwealth Bank Series after experiencing discomfort in his right leg.

He returned for the World Cup but was again troubled by the injury in the sub-continent.

He has played two Friends Life t20 matches for Yorkshire in the last week and will strengthen England’s bowling options.

With 42 one-day caps to his name, he offers experience and is also considered one of the side's most dependable limited-overs seamers.
