England and Yorkshire pace bowler Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of the remainder of the international season with a stress fracture in his lower back.
Bresnan will begin a recovery and rehabilitation programme and a date for his return to cricket will be determined in due course.
“I know exactly what a stress fracture feels like and it’s not a nice place to be.
“I feel for Bres and I will be giving him a call to see how he’s going. It is tragic for him and it will hurt him. He is such an important member of that England side and for him to get a stress fracture is obviously disappointing, especially with the way he and England have been playing.”
