After last summer’s pitiful behaviour Monty Panesar is hoping to redeem himself in what would be his last chance to shine in a three lions outfit.
England’s Ashes summer in Australia is about to commence, and the three lions will be hoping to secure a fourth successive Ashes triumph.
Such a feat has never been accomplished; and Monty will be hoping he can play a part in putting England into the record books.
Once a quite and beautifully mannered Sikh boy who was shamefully caught urinating on bouncers in July last summer, will be hoping to make an amends for his ill mannered behavior.
Sussex had no choice but to terminate his contract after the incident, but with a bowling average of 25 in his first three seasons, which is astonishing, some would say it was a huge loss to see him go.
To add to the turmoil his wife filled an injunction order against him, to keep him away.
They divorced last year and he recently admitted he has started drinking which could be a factor in his poor form for Sussex in his last season.
However, after his release by Sussex, Panesar got the ball rolling again.
He played six first class matches for Essex; and took 14 wickets with an average of 36, which is not great but considering the summer he had it was more than satisfactory and enough for the England selectors.
