England spinner Monty Panesar has been recruited by Cricket Australia as a spin-bowling consultant before their upcoming tour of India.
Pat Howard, Cricket Australia's high performance manager decided to recruit Panesar after Australia’s poor performance against Asian spinners.
Having Monty come up is a nice way to kickstart the squad's thinking about playing in India. We want the batsmen to be thinking about what the bowlers will be trying to do to them over there and Monty can engage them that way as well as with the bowlers.
Panesar last played for England in the 2013-14 Ashes and has since played first-class cricket in England as well as a club cricketer in Sydney.
