Tim Bresnan’s focus on Ashes place after laser eye surgery
Tim Bresnan hopes that having 20/20 vision will help him book a place on England’s Ashes tour this winter.
Bresnan had his sights set on a successful summer in all forms of the game for England but saw his progress hampered by a foot injury he picked up in the First npower Test against Bangladesh at Lord’s last month.
But the all-rounder has his eyes on the prize of a tour Down Under, revealing that he plans to have laser eye treatment at the end of the season to improve his vision.
“I’m supposed to wear contact lenses when I’m playing but I don’t,” said Bresnan. “I’ve got quite bad astigmatism, so I don’t really get on with contacts.
“I can’t wear glasses either for batting or bowling but I’ve coped quite well with it so far. So if I get the laser treatment, I won’t be nicking anything!
“[England wicket-keeper) Matt Prior has had it done and it’s something I’m pursuing. We’re looking at doing it at the end of the season, after Pakistan finish their tour on 22 September.”
Bresnan’s immediate focus is on the five-match one-day series against Australia, which begins at The Rose Bowl on 22 June and concludes at Lord’s on 3 July.
