Paceman Tim Bresnan has been recalled to England’s Test squad after recovering from a back injury ahead of the second Ashes Test against Australia.

The England Cricket Board issued a statement on Monday announcing Bresnan has recovered from a back stress fracture that has sidelined him since August and “is available for selection” for the Adelaide Test starting on Thursday.

Bresnan could push for a spot in Adelaide but would more likely be in the calculations for the third Test in Perth, where the bounce and pace of the wicket suits fast bowlers.
