Yorkshire have embarked on their pre-season trip to Mumbai this morning, as preparations for the season step up.

All-rounder Tim Bresnan, who is set for his 20th season with the White Rose, was one of 14 players flying out to India to join up with the pace quartet that are already there and Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who arrived from England Lions’ tour to Australia a few days ago.

Reflecting on pre-season, Bresnan said: “It’s been good. Obviously, a lot has changed since the first one. Everything we do fitness wise has changed. We don’t just go for a bit of a jog anymore and get straight into the cricket, it’s full-on in the gym. We’ve all got strength and conditioning programs and I feel like I’ve embraced it in the last couple of years. I’m just trying to get myself fitter and playing for longer.”

An overseas tour has been a feature for Yorkshire for a number of years as it provides a great opportunity for the bowlers to increase their workload, batsmen to face plenty of deliveries and the whole squad to get some game time.

“It’s always a nice feeling to get your spikes on again,” Bresnan continued. “Just bowling outside and getting some decent overs under your belt on grass. Obviously with that comes the pain which I’m not looking forward to but the actual getting outside, I think the lads are ready for now.”
