Bresnan gets team call up ahead of 1st ODI

London: Tim Bresnan has been added to the England side ahead of the one day series against Sri Lanka at home.

Bresnan got the team call up after he was declared fit having recovered from a calf injury.

Bresnan will join the squad at The Oval ahead of the first ODI on Tuesday and is available immediately having responded to treatment on the injury that kept him out of the three-match Test series.

Bresnan’s presence will strengthen England`s bowling options, after they under performed in Bristol, slumping to a nine-wicket defeat.

He has played two Twenty20 matches for Yorkshire in the last week proving his fitness.

Alastair Cook begins his reign as one-day captain today, the side`s third skipper in as many matches following Test leader Andrew Strauss and new Twenty20 man Stuart Broad.
