London:

England fast bowler Tim Bresnan on Tuesday said he would not mind losing his position to fellow pacer Stuart Broad in the final playing eleven on the morning of the Lord's Test on Thursday.

"We both offer good things to England, to the team as a whole and (my selection) depends on the conditions and what Andy (Flower) and (Andrew) Strauss decide," remarked Bresnan, whose aggressive bowling style has caught the eye in a short career of seven Tests.

"The only thing I could do is to bowl well and push for a place. If it comes my way, brilliant," he said.

"You can't play every single international. It's not feasible. That's why it's important you have a squad of bowlers."

Bresnan has been very impressive in his short career, taking 25 wickets at 28.88 average including 11 in Tests against Australia.

Bresnan caught the eyes of Indians when he took a five wicket haul in the 2011 World Cup and didn't allow Sachin Tendulkar to dominate in Bangalore, the venue of the match.

"If you could bowl to him in Bangalore you could bowl to him anywhere else," he said.

Bresnan, who comes from Yorkshire, remembers watching Tendulkar in a match as a seven-year-old kid when the champion Indian batsman turned out for Yorkshire in the summer of 1992.

"I remember watching him from the outfield. I was not big on him then but we still talked about," he said.
