The spinner was released by county club Sussex after being fined by police for urinating in public following his ejection from a nightclub, and he has not played for England since the incident.

England national selector Geoff Miller says Panesar is very sure those errors are behind him now and he is very prepared to let his bowling do the talking for him so I am prepared to accept that.''
