London: Feb 14, 2013

England seamer Tim Bresnan will hope to revive his international career on home soil later this year after undergoing surgery in the United States on a longstanding elbow problem.

The 27-year-old Yorkshireman was left out of England’s ongoing limited overs and Test tour of New Zealand in order to have the operation and now Bresnan will hope to be fit in time for the return home series against the Black Caps starting on May 16.

England officials said Thursday that Bresnan would face between six to eight weeks of rehabilitation following an “uncomplicated operation”.

“England and Yorkshire bowler Tim Bresnan has undergone an uncomplicated operation on his right elbow to remove extra bone and scar tissue,” said an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) statement issued Thursday.

“Bresnan will now commence a six-eight week rehabilitation and back to bowling programme before returning to competitive cricket early in the (English) summer,” the ECB added.

Bresnan, also a useful lower-order batsman who has played 18 Tests, 69 One-Day Internationals and 25 Twenty20 internationals, first had an operation on his troublesome right elbow in 2011.

He struggled last year, finishing 2012 with two wicketless Tests in India following a lean series against South Africa.

If Bresnan fails to recover in time for the home series with New Zealand, the Ashes-winner could look at making an international comeback during the one-day ICC Champions Trophy in England which starts in June.
