Yorkshire fast bowler Tim Bresnan has been on the winning side in every one of his eight Tests for England, and is looking forward to roughing up India again in the third Test that begins from August 10 at Edgbaston.
Conceding that he could lose his place despite his stunning all-round performance at Trent Bridge, the Guardian quoted Bresnan as telling coach Flower: "Played eight, won eight - a stat he is not afraid to mention to me."
The paper quoted Bresnan, as saying: "I enjoyed it actually, especially Yuvraj. I like getting the batters jumping around and hopping about the crease because it's not very often you get to do it on slow wickets, which is what I've played on a bit in the last 18 months. Here we had a bit of pace and bounce."
"I felt as though I bowled better in the first innings. I bowled a nice long spell, which is what I like. It gives me a chance to really get into it and I felt as though I was really on top of the batters, especially Yuvraj, in the first dig. In the second innings everything seemed to happen all at once really," he added.
He hopes he has done enough to retain his place for Birmingham, even if Chris Tremlett is fit to return.
"That is pretty much all I can do now. It's up to the selectors, the captain or whoever is going to make the decision to pick the side for the next game. It is a good position for English cricket really, and I've said this all along," Bresnan said.
