Injured England swing bowler Tim Bresnan is sleeping with one arm in a machine in bid to get fully fit before the Ashes series this year.

The crocked Yorkshire all-rounder won't return until May due to an elbow injury, but Bresnan is doing everything he can to be ready for the Aussies this summer, the Sun reports.

Bresnan has been using an uncomfortable looking continuous passive motion machine, which helps aid, his recovery by constantly moving the joint through a controlled range of motion, the paper said.

Bresnan wittily tweeted: "Another comfortable nights sleep courtesy of continuous passive motion. @Swannyg66 knows exactly how I'm feeling." (ANI)
