A bustling all-rounder, Tim Bresnan will certainly not let his country down if he is called upon during the Ashes this summer.

The 28-year-old from Yorkshire, who is a big rugby league fan, was signalled out as a potential star at a young age and was thrust into first-class cricket by the White Rose as a teenager. Although part of the England Under 19 set-up, Bresnan didn't really fully produce for the Tykes until the summer of 2005.

An England call-up came along the following year, though the right-armer, along with the rest of the bowlers used, found the going tough in a one-day series against a Sri Lanka side inspired by an in-form Sanath Jayasuriya.

His next opportunity didn't came along until 2008, by which time he had registered his maiden first-class century against Surrey.

However it was the following year that he jumped towards the front of the queue, and not just for limited overs action. With Andrew Flintoff's Test career over, England decided to look at Bresnan against the West Indies on home soil.

Such was the one-sided nature of the series that he ended up barely being used. He didn't take his first wicket until the second innings of the second Test, ending up with three in another landslide victory.

His bowling was much more utilised in the 2010 tour of Bangladesh, with his reverse swing particularly impressive, while he also weighed in with some useful runs from number eight in the order.

But it was in Australia in 2010-11 where he really proved his salt, stepping in for Steven Finn at Melbourne and Sydney in fairytale fashion. He took two wickets on day one of the Boxing Day Test as Australia slumped to 98 all out and ended with 11 wickets in the two famous wins.

Bresnan has been struggling with injuries and fallen down the pecking order of late, but don't be surprised if England hand him a call-up at the business end of the series.
