Northants Cricket is delighted to announce that Monty Panesar has been included in England's 16-man training squad ahead of the Npower Ashes Test Series.
This is fantastic news for the Northants spinner as he has a perfect opportunity to face the likes of Ricky Ponting, Mike Hussey and Michael Clarke.
Monty said of his call-up: "I'm really excited to have been included in the squad for training camp. I can't wait to meet up with everyone and get on with training for the first Test in July." Monty added about the extended training period, "It's a great idea and it will help us prepare before the start of the series."
The 27-year-old spinner will join up with his England team mates later this week, for a two-week long training camp.
For Monty, it will be an opportunity to remind us all of his credentials ahead of the first Ashes Test, at the Swalec stadium between the 8th and 12th July.
