Bresnan decides to leave Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
Tim Bresnan officially announced that he will leave Yorkshire after 19 years. Since his debut in 2003, he played in 199 first-class matches and took a total of 557 wickets with an average of 28.81.
‘Everyone at the Club has huge respect for Tim for what he has achieved in his career for Yorkshire and England’, Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon said.
‘He has represented the Club with huge pride and distinction for 19 years. His contribution both on and off the field has been immense and we wish him every success for the future’, he added.
He also played with the national team 142 times across formats and in every single game during England’s victorious T20 World Cup in 2010.
‘I would like to thank Yorkshire for giving me 19 fantastic years and the opportunity when I was younger to kick-start my career’, Bresnan said.
‘Hopefully, with me moving aside, the younger players will get their opportunity to kick-start their careers as well. It has given me immense pride to represent the county for the best part of two decades. My Yorkshire cap is one of my proudest possessions. I would also like to thank the Members for their support during my time at Yorkshire’, he added.
However, he also said that he is not quitting the game anytime soon. He just wants to experience a fresh new environment as a player. Tim Bresnan made his T20I debut in June 2006 on a match against Australia. To learn more about cricket formats, check out Betwala.
