In 2008 Monty Panesar signed a £300,000 book deal with publishers Hodder and Stoughton to detail the early years of his career and his breakthrough into the England international set up.

Originally criticised by many (Monty was only 25 at the time of publication) the book details how a young Sikh from Luton managed to progress his career to the highest possible level of the cricketing world.

Domestic Career

Believe it of not Monty Panesar started his career as a medium paced bowler before making the eventual switch to off-spinner on the advice of coach at his first club, Northamptonshire, Paul Taylor.

His domestic career spans the length of 15 years from 2000-2015 and it's only very recently come to a possible end after being released in September 2015 by Essex cricket club.

Our domestic timeline covers all career highs and lows, all clubs played for and first class career statistics in both the longer and shorter formats of the game.
