Castleford’s England all-rounder Tim Bresnan has signed a new contract that will keep him at Yorkshire County Cricket Club until December 2016.

Bresnan, who has starred with the bat this week scoring 105 for England in the LV= Challenge match against Essex, will be an integral part of the England squad during the Ashes series against Australia alongside his Yorkshire team-mates Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.

“It is great news that Tim has committed his long-term future to the Club,” said Yorkshire’s director of cricket Martyn Moxon.

“Tim has firmly established himself as an England regular but his commitment to Yorkshire is vital in our on-going efforts of developing a strong squad based around players produced through the club development system.”

Bresnan becomes the sixth player this summer to sign a new deal. He follows Moin Ashraf, Jonny Bairstow, Gary Ballance, Steve Patterson and Azeem Rafiq, who are now committed to the club for the foreseeable future.
