Tim Bresnan insists that England's lower order could be important during the forthcoming Ashes series.
Tim Bresnan has insisted that England's lower order could be important during the forthcoming Ashes series.
Alastair Cook's side are taking part in a warm-up game against Essex this week, with Bresnan and fellow tail-end batsman Graeme Swann putting on a partnership of 150 on day two.
"Part of a successful team is that everyone's capable with the bat and if needs be they can get you out of trouble if you're in a bit," Bresnan told Sky Sports News.
"I don't see it as a bad thing that the lads down the order are getting a bit of a hit."
The first Ashes Test begins at Trent Bridge on July 11.
