Dishonoured England spinner Monty Panesar has been removed from England Lions squad, which will face Australia in a two-day match at Northampton this weekend following, after he was found to urinate publicly on two nightclub bouncers last week.
 
Panesar was fined for drunkenly urinating in public after being asked to leave a nightclub. He was called for the third Test at Old Trafford but was not given a chance.
 
According to a report in Zee News, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) accepted Panesar’s being ruled out. As a result, Panesar may not be recalled for the Oval test for the final Ashes Test as Sussex is yet to complete their investigation about the incident.
 
In place of Panesar, young Lancashire left-armer Simon Kerrigan might get the chance to play and impress the selectors against Australia.
 
Panesar has played six of the seven Tests last winter for England. However, ECB mentioned in a report that the board is not considering him as he hasn’t played regularly or is not a contracted player.
