Sky Bet

England will decide whether to allow Tim Bresnan to play in this weekend's Friends Life t20 Finals Day for Yorkshire after Friday's first NatWest one-day international in Cardiff.

Bresnan was set to miss the rest of Yorkshire season but England could yet release him for Finals Day, which will also be staged at the SWALEC Stadium on Saturday.

Bresnan's England team-mates Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire) and Craig Kieswetter (Somerset) have already been made available for Finals Day.

"The club remains hopeful that Tim will be able to represent Yorkshire Carnegie on Finals Day."

Decision

"The ECB last night announced that Tim Bresnan was unavailable to play for Yorkshire for the remainder of the season including the Friends Life t20 Finals Day in Cardiff this weekend," read a Yorkshire statement.

"The club however understands that Tim's involvement in Finals Day depends on decisions to be made by the England management following the NatWest ODI on Friday.

"The club remains hopeful that Tim will be able to represent Yorkshire Carnegie on Finals Day but will also respect any decision made that furthers the chances of the England national side."
