'Lucky mascot' Bresnan believes he makes a difference to England team
London, May 17(ANI): England fast bowler Tim Bresnan believes he makes a difference to the team with his performances, apart from being its lucky mascot.
Bresnan made his debut against the West Indies at Lord's in 2009, and since then, he has been a part of ten Test wins for England, prompting some to brand him lucky for the team, but he feels there is certainly more to it.
"I'd love to get a game, it is the ground (Lord's) I made my debut on against the West Indies so I would love the chance to play them again and make a decent contribution," Bresnan wrote in his column for The Daily Mail.
"I only bowled seven overs in 2009, without taking a wicket, so I would hope to get through a few more this time and obviously grab another win which is what matters," he added.
"I've been a part of 10 more wins since then and people are starting to call me England's lucky mascot, but I like to think I'm a bit more than that and actually make a difference to the team with my performances," he further wrote.
Bresnan said he would be fine with captain Andrew Strauss's decision to play him or not in the Lord's Test against the West Indies, starting on Thursday, since he has full trust in his decisions.
"It's no secret there is a battle for the last pace bowling spot, so whoever the coach and the captain feel will do the best job on that pitch is the man they will go for. They have made the right calls in the past, and I'm sure they will do so again, it is why we are No.1," Bresnan wrote. (ANI)
