Monty Panesar took 167 wickets in his 50 Tests for England – but one of his most notable contributions came with the bat.

Panesar, in tandem with fellow tailender James Anderson, thwarted Australia at Cardiff in 2009, earning England a draw in that year’s Ashes opener with Ricky Ponting’s tourists unable to claim the final wicket.

As our full rerun of that Test continues on Sky Sports Cricket – including a watchalong of the final stages on Sunday evening – Sky Cricket statistician Benedict Bermange has focused his weekly quiz on Panesar.
