Monty Panesar Biography

Mudhsuden Singh Panesar, known as Monty Panesar is an English international cricketer who currently plays for Sussex and has also played for Lions in South Africa. He has played for Northamptonshire in English country cricket until 2009. A left-arm spinner, Panesar made his Test debut in 2006 and one-day debut for England in 2007. He is credited as the first Sikh to represent a nation other than India in Test cricket. His first-class debut came in 2001 at the age of 19 against Leicestershire. He took eight wickets in the match including 4-11 in the second innings, bowling 16 maidens. After graduating, he became a more important member of the team and had a fine season in 2005, taking 51 County Championship wickets at an average of just 22.47 including career-best figures of 7-181 against Essex. In the 2009-10 season he signed to play for the Highveld Lions in South Africa. The following season, Panesar joined Sussex and went on to score 163 runs at an average of 10.86 with a career-high score of 46 not out. After taking 69 wickets in the 2011 county season Panesar earned a recall for the series against Pakistan in the U.A.E.; he played in the second Test - his first Test appearance in over two and a half years.
