Tim Bresnan says he will be ready to return to action in a fortnight for Yorkshire’s three-day friendly against Lancashire.

The all-rounder missed England’s tour of New Zealand after undergoing surgery on an elbow injury which has plagued the 28-year-old in recent months.

Bresnan is continuing his rehabilitation from the operation and hopes to be fit for the friendly on 16 April ahead of a busy summer of cricket for England.

“[I’ll be back in] a couple of weeks I think, all being well. We’ve got a three day friendly against Lancashire so I’m targeting that game, I should be able to play a full part in it,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s coming back strong now. I’m back bowling in the nets against the lads so I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing some cricket. It’s always frustrating being injured. You’ve just got to take it on the chin, its part and parcel of the game.

“You are going to get injured at some point, hopefully not that often and hopefully not that severe but the way international cricket is these days, you play so much of it, it’s inevitable really.

“I can’t wait to get going now, the elbow’s feeling a lot better than it was before the operation, even though I’m not fully fit yet.”
