Dubai - England will be without paceman Tim Bresnan for the forthcoming Pakistan series because of injury, the England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed on Monday.

The 26-year-old paceman, who still has soreness in the elbow which was operated on last month, already missed England's opening three-day tour match against an ICC Combined XI which they won by three wickets in the United Arab Emirates on Monday.

England play a Pakistan Cricket Board XI in the second side match, also to be played in Dubai, from January 11-13.

Bresnan took 16 wickets in the three Tests he played against India at home last year - a series which lifted captain Andrew Strauss's men to number one in Test rankings.
