England seamer Tim Bresnan will hope to revive his international career on home soil later this year after undergoing surgery in the United States on a longstanding elbow problem

The 27-year-old Yorkshireman was left out of England’s ongoing limited overs and Test tour of New Zealand in order to have the operation and now Bresnan will hope to be fit in time for the return home series against the Black Caps starting on May 16.
