Tim Bresnan – A former England all-rounder, has announced his retirement from cricket

Tim Bresnan, a former England and Warwickshire all-rounder, has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket with immediate effect following his county’s eighth County Championship title success.Bresnan’s professional cricket career, which spanned 20 years, has come to an end.

In 2003, the 36-year-old made his professional cricket debut, and in 2006, he got his England international debut. During his career, which spanned from 2003 to 2022, he performed in 213 first-class matches, 281 List-A games, and 191 T20 matches. Bresnan represented England in 23 Tests, 85 ODIs, and 34 T20Is between 2006 and 2015.

“Now has been an extraordinarily difficult choice,” Tim Bresnan told Edgbaston.com, “but after returning to winter training, I believe that this is the perfect moment.” I’ve worked hard over the offseason to prepare for my 21st professional season, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I won’t be able to meet the high standards that I’ve set for myself and my colleagues.

“The passion and excitement I have for the game I love will never leave me,” he says.”Though my mind is prepared to face the season of 2022, my body is not.”

“I’ll always have fond memories of my career, and it’s been a great honour to represent Warwickshire, my home county and country.”When I was younger, I never realised how lucky I was to have played alongside and against some of the best cricketers in the world.”

Tim Bresnan adds, “I’ve Been Exceptionally Lucky To Represent England And Yorkshire.”

Tim Bresnan scored 575 runs and took 72 wickets in Tests, 879 runs and 109 wickets in ODIs, and 216 runs and 24 wickets in T20Is for England. He was also a member of England’s first T20 World Cup-winning team, who defeated Australia in the 2010 T20 World Cup in the West Indies.

Bresnan also guided Warwickshire Bears in claiming the Country Championship last summer. Also helped Yorkshire in 2014 and 2015. He won the Ashes series in Australia in 2010-11 and at home in 2013.

He has 575 first-class wickets and 7128 runs to his name, comprising 7 centuries. In his career, he took 316 List-A wickets and scored 3240 runs. Bresnan also had 196 T20 wickets in his career.

“In reflection, I’m happy of all we’ve accomplished as a team, and that last day versus Somerset will be with me for the rest of my life.” I am certain that this group of players can build on their achievements and continue to improve.

“From the moment I came, Warwickshire seemed like home, and its members and supporters will always have a special place in my heart”.  “Once a bear,always a bear” is an aphorism that holds true.

I’ve had the incredible honour of representing England and Yorkshire, and those memories will stay with me forever.The chance to wear the Three Lions should never be taken for granted, and I’m delighted to have played a little role in our country’s illustrious history,” Bresnan added in his statement.

“I’m looking forward to my new phase and i am keen to give it all I’ve got, just like I did for so many years on the cricket ground,” he added.
