Tim Bresnan announces retirement from professional cricket

Tim Bresnan, the former England all-rounder, announced his retirement from professional cricket via his club Warwickshire, drawing a close to a career spanning 20 years.

Bresnan represented England in 23 Tests, having had made his Test debut against West Indies at Lord’s in 2009. He has also played 85 ODIs and 34 T20Is. In his first-class career, he amassed 7,138 runs and 575 wickets with 7 centuries and 9 five-wicket hauls.

“I will always look back at my career with immense pride and it’s been an absolute honor to represent Warwickshire, my home county and country,” Bresnan said. “Growing up I never would have believed how lucky I was to play with and against some of the finest cricketers to grace the game… the opportunity to wear the Three Lions is something that should never be taken for granted and I’m proud to have played a very small part in our country’s storied history. I’m excited about my next chapter and am determined to throw everything into it, as I did on the cricket field for so many years.”

Bresnan joined Warwickshire in June 2020, having moved from Yorkshire where he played from 2001 to 2019, even helping them to County titles in 2014 and 2015.
