Former England spinner Monty Panesar said – used to do the ball to reverse swing
Monty played 50 Tests between 2006 and 2013 for England, 26 ODIs and the only T20
Sports desk England's former spin bowler Monty Panesar has revealed a shocking revelation about ball tempering (ball tampering). They used sunscreen lotions, mints and trousers' chains to make the ball help in reverse swing. This is what Panesar told in his autobiography The Full Monty.
A part of the book of Indian-origin Monty Panesar was published on the Daily Mail. In this, Panesar said that according to James Anderson, I was asked to keep the ball dry. They used to do this for this and used to prepare the ball according to Anderson's choice. Anderson has responded to Monty's disclosures. He said, 'I just wanted that the ball be dry in any way.'
Panesar said – our mistake to rub the ball on the chain
37-year-old Panesar said that whether we have broken the law or not, it depends on how you interpret the whole sentences. We found that mint, sunscreen lotions and saliva help to reverse the ball a lot, we did it. He said that to force the ball, he used to rub the trousers slightly upside down and rub the ball on it. We consider this thing a mistake.
Panesar, who has expressed his desire to return to cricket
Panesar played the last match for England in the 2013-14 Ashes series in Melbourne. Recently, he expressed his desire to return to cricket in an interview given to former England captain Nasir Hussain. He also talked about his mental illness.
