Bresnan will join the Bears initially on a loan deal, subject to ECB clearance, which covers the remainder of the 2020 county season*.
Born in Pontefract, Bresnan (35) has enjoyed a 19-year career in the game to date and played a lead role in the Yorkshire side that won back-to-back County Championships in the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
At international level, he was part of the England sides that won the ICC men’s T20 World Cup in the Caribbean in 2010 and that reached number one in the ICC Test world rankings in 2011. He also was part of England’s 2010/11 team that won the Ashes in Australia for the first time in 24 years and that retained the urn on home soil in 2013.
Paul Farbrace, Sport Director at Warwickshire CCC, said: “With multiple trophies to his name, Tim is a winner and he knows exactly what it takes to perform and to ultimately succeed at the highest level.
“He has vast experience of bowling in the powerplays and of closing out games with the ball and bat in both white ball formats. In First Class cricket, he has the ability to bowl long and challenging spells and also produce game-changing innings.
“With several young, homegrown players coming through, we also see Tim’s experience as a great asset to help these players understand what is required to reach their potential and be part of a Warwickshire team that can challenge for trophies. Having him on board is a fantastic move for the Club.”
Tim Bresnan said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Warwickshire. It’s a Club that I’ve always admired, and I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed playing at Edgbaston with Yorkshire and England.
“I’ve had some great conversations with Paul Farbrace about the way that he plans to take the Club forwards, and I see this move as a great fit for both of us. I have still got a strong desire to continuing playing at the top level and to win, so hopefully I can pass on a bit of my experience to the young players who are coming through.
“I know quite a few of the players well, so I can’t wait to move down and get cracking.”
Warwickshire CCC announced yesterday that its men’s team squad will return to training on Wednesday 1 July in preparation for the start of the 2020 county season on 1 August. Details of the formats and fixture list will be revealed by the England & Wales Cricket Board in the coming weeks.
*Terms of the loan deal allow Bresnan to be available for Warwickshire in 2020 in all formats but exclude any fixtures that are played against Yorkshire.
