England have recalled bowlers Graeme Swann and Tim Bresnan to their 12-man squad for the opening Test against New Zealand, which begins on Thursday (16th May).
Both men missed the winter series in New Zealand to undergo elbow surgery but they have made successful returns to action with their counties and are back in contention for selection.
England have added Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes to their 15-man Test squad to tour New Zealand as Tim Bresnan is to undergo further treatment on his injured elbow.
Joe Root has been added to the One-Day International squad, meaning James Taylor will captain the England Lions in Australia while both Craig Kieswetter and Jade Dernbach have been dropped from the One-Day International squad.
It is England all-rounder Tim Bresnan who wins this week's award. The 27 year-old from Pontefract put behind him a relatively poor performance at Lord's to return his best Test match figures of eight for 141. He also chipped in with a doughty 39 not out to prevent a collapse in England's first innings.
England fast bowler Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of England's three-Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.
He has failed to recover sufficiently from an elbow operation he underwent in November and will now return home to begin a recovery period of around three weeks.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have awarded 13 players 12-month central contracts with Tim Bresnan, Eoin Morgan and Chris Tremlett earning such contracts for the first time.
Former One-Day International and Twenty20 International captain Paul Collingwood has not had his contract renewed, however, due to his retirement from Test cricket which makes him ineligible.
Yorkshire all-rounder Tim Bresnan has been added to England's One-Day International squad ahead of the five-match series against Sri Lanka.
Bresnan was ruled out of the Test series between the two sides with a calf injury but has now fully recovered and returned to action with Yorkshire in the Friends Life t20 earlier this week.
