    England cricketer Monty Panesar has said he hopes to get back in England's Test team as well as continuing to perform well for his county, after signing a new three-year extension to his Sussex contract.

    Luton-born Panesar, the first Sikh to play for England, said he was delighted the county had been so keen to keep him on, stating: "I aim to repay their faith by continuing my good form in all formats of the game whilst also improving my chances of reclaiming my place in the England side."

    Those enjoying corporate hospitality at Trent Bridge may be keen to see if the left-arm spinner gets a game for his country there, as it was on that ground that he took his first five-wicket Test haul in 2006 against Sri Lanka.
    Trent Bridge is also the home ground of the world's highest-ranked spinner Graeme Swann, but the winter series against Pakistan in the UAE and away to Sri Lanka may see England field two slow bowlers on turning pitches.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
