Big Bres look­ing for­ward to another stint in Perth

The Cricket Paper - - FEATURE -

YORK­SHIRE all-rounder Tim Bres­nan has re­vealed that he jumped at the chance to sign for Perth Scorchers.

The Scorchers brought in Bres­nan to re­place David Wil­ley, who will be un­avail­able for the fi­nal three group games as well as the fi­nal should they reach them be­cause of his Eng­land com­mit­ments.

Bres­nan said:“It was an easy de­ci­sion re­ally. The past his­tory of Big Bash, they’ve al­ways done well, so it’s a log­i­cal choice.

“When they said they wanted a re­place­ment for Dave Wil­ley, I jumped at the chance.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting out there and play­ing some Big Bash cricket again. I re­ally en­joyed it last time when I played with Ho­bart.”

Bres­nan will make his de­but next Wed­nes­day against Bris­bane Heat at the Gabba.

Scorchers coach Justin Langer said:“Tim is another very ex­pe­ri­enced player who’s done very well in Twenty20 cricket in Eng­land.

“His in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence and first-class ex­pe­ri­ence is a great as­set for us.

“Like with the rest of our squad, he's a very good per­son who’ll fit in very well for our team ethos.”
