Hussain says 'brilliant' Panesar deserves more England opportunities
London, Nov 27(ANI): Left-arm spinner Monty Panesar deserves more chances to play for England in Test cricket and he once again proved his doubters wrong with a brilliant performance in their win against India in Mumbai, according to former Test captain and cricket commentator Nasser Hussain.
"Panesar was quite brilliant in this second Test. We had all the talk about whether he should have more variations or bowl at differing paces but in this game he did what he does best: bowl quickly and get the ball to spin at pace," Hussain wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.
"In recent times Monty has only played when it has been blindingly obvious that he should, but perhaps England need to change their mind-set and play him unless it is blindingly obvious that he should not," he added.
"Sometimes we don't see what's in front of our eyes and in Panesar England have a seriously good bowler who has made a strong case for playing more often," he further wrote.
Hussain added: "Some of the deliveries he bowled to Sachin Tendulkar in particular were remarkable and for that reason I would not be too critical of the Indian batsmen." (ANI)
