Leading achievements: Six wickets in the final Ashes Test 2011
Taking six wickets in the Ashes remains one of Tim Bresnan’s greatest achievements for England.
Despite not featuring in the series against Australia until the fourth Test, he still found time to make his mark.
Bresnan took six wickets in the two innings to hand England victory at the MCG in Melbourne to give them a 2-1 lead and confirm that the Ashes had been retained.
He will be longer odds than the likes of Jimmy Anderson and Graeme Swann in the upcoming Test series against the West Indies and could provide great value to be leading wicket-taker.
Bresnan a useful option in one-day cricket
Bresnan’s ability to swing a bat makes him an even more important component of England’s one-day team.
Bresnan is equally adept at taking the new ball, while he can also be utilised as a first-change bowler because of his ability to vary his pace.
This, coupled with Bresnan’s ability to break up a long-standing partnership, would make him a good in-play bet for next wicket against West Indies, should their batsmen manage to put on a respectable stand.
Bresnan’s all-action style also always makes him a good bet both in the batting and bowling departments in T20 internationals, as proven by his brilliant batting strike rate.
