Tim Bresnan will return to cricket "early in the summer" after undergoing surgery on his long-standing elbow problem.

The England seam bowler was forced to miss the current tour of New Zealand with a complaint which first required an operation in late 2011.

England selector Geoff Miller indicated in the wake of January's one-day series in India that further surgery might be needed.

And a statement from the ECB read: "England and Yorkshire bowler Tim Bresnan has undergone an uncomplicated operation on his right elbow to remove extra bone and scar tissue.

"Bresnan will now commence a six-to-eight-week rehabilitation and back to bowling programme before returning to competitive cricket early in the summer.

That timescale gives Bresnan every chance of making New Zealand's return series in England and June's ICC Champions Trophy.
