England, who were number one in the world, lost all three matches to Pakistan.

Former Bedford Modern School and Luton Town & Indians left-arm spinner Panesar was making his international comeback after a gap of more than two years and performed superbly to claim 14 wickets in the two Tests he played.

Fellow bowler Stuart Broad said:” Monty Panesar’s return has been terrific and credit to county cricket for that because he has worked hard there and taken a lot of good wickets.”
