Cricket World Cup 2011
Bresnan in injury scare

Colombo - Team officials say England bowler Tim Bresnan went through a precautionary scan on his calf after feeling discomfort in his right leg.
Bresnan felt minor pain on Wednesday, but a team official hoped the medium fast bowler, who also bats lower down the order, will be fit for Saturday's quarterfinal against Sri Lanka.
Bresnan flew back home during the one-day series against Australia earlier his year when he suffered injury in the same muscle.
He has shouldered the burden of England's seam attack by taking nine wickets in six World Cup group matches, as his fellow pace bowlers have struggled on the slow wickets of the subcontinent.
Time for the playoffs
As I write this, we’re just a few hours out from our playoff game against the Mumbai Indians.
