Panesar Joins Sussex

CRICKET : England spinner Monty Panesar has joined Twenty20 champions Sussex on a three-year deal.

England spinner Monty Panesar has joined Twenty20 champions Sussex on a three-year deal.
Panesar, 27, endured a tough season with Northamptonshire and left Wantage Road despite having a year left on his contract.
“I am extremely grateful to Northamptonshire for all their support in my career so far and also for allowing me to make this move,” said Panesar, currently playing for Highveld Lions in South African domestic cricket.
“I know Michael Yardy well from rooming with him on tour, so I am really looking forward to working under his captaincy and with the coaching staff at Hove to help the club reclaim its Division One County Championship status and maintain its premier position in the shorter forms of the game.
“Success in this new challenge with Sussex can only improve my chances of reclaiming my place in the England standings, which is the pinnacle for any player.”
Panesar claimed just 18 first-class victims at an average of 59.44 for Northants this summer.
But Sussex coach Mark Robinson is confident of revitalising a career which saw him rush to 100 Test wickets in just 28 appearances; he has taken just 25 in 11 matches since.
“I am very excited about the prospect of Monty joining us from 2010,” said Robinson.
“It is testament to the club that we are able to attract a player of Monty’s calibre, and I am sure he will play a key part in helping us achieve our aims for the coming season.”
