London: Monty Panesar has described his selection for this winter’s Ashes series as an “incredible boost” after he feared that his England career was over.
“I just can’t tell you how thrilled I am with the selection,” Panesar said.
“It’s an incredible boost, which I needed as a cricketer and as a person, after a chapter in my life I’m ashamed of.”
With regard to the incident in Brighton, Panesar admitted that “it looks terrible”, but that he “wasn’t as drunk as people believe”.
“The next morning I woke up and thought, ‘What have I done?’,” he said.
