Tim Bresnan: Yorkshire have 'immense focus' on One-Day Cup

Yorkshire pace bowler Tim Bresnan insists they are not taking Sunday's One-Day Cup semi-final opponents Gloucestershire lightly.

The Headingley side, who are 52 points clear at the top of the County Championship, will face Surrey or Notts at Lord's if they make home advantage count against Gloucestershire.

"It's a possible trophy but we have got to play well to have a chance of making the final," he told BBC Look North.

"There is immense focus on it."

Bresnan last played for England against Ireland in May and was overlooked for the current one-day series against Australia, leaving him free to contribute to Yorkshire's quest for a double.

"I think we have played really good one-day cricket up until now," the 30-year-old said.

"The T20 was a bit of a disappointment for us but we have parked that until next year and we've played well in the One-Day Cup."

He took three wickets as Yorkshire wrapped up a Championship victory over Somerset on Thursday.

Jason Gillespie's side now need just six points from their final three fixtures to retain the title.

"The boys bowled phenomenally well. We said in the changing room that it's probably our best performance as a bowling unit," Bresnan added.
