Adelaide:

Paceman Tim Bresnan has been recalled to England's Test squad after recovering from a back injury ahead of the second Ashes test against Australia.

Australia won the series-opening match by 381 runs in Brisbane, where its pace attacked comprehensively outplayed England.

The England Cricket Board issued a statement on Monday announcing Bresnan has recovered from a back stress fracture that has sidelined him since August and "is available for selection" for the Adelaide Test starting Thursday.

Bresnan, who has 67 wickets in 21 Tests, could push for a spot in Adelaide but would more likely be in the calculations for the third Test in Perth, where the bounce and pace of the wicket suits fast bowlers.
