Panesar left out of England side
Monty Panesar will be available for Sussex's crucial Championship clash with Derbyshire tomorrow after being left out of the England side for the third Ashes Test at Old Trafford this morning.
Panesar was named in a 14-man squad for the match on Sunday to give England the option of playing a second spinner on what is traditionally a turning wicket.
But Alistair Cook and Andy Flower have opted to stick with their policy of playing three seamers and using Joe Root as a second spinner alongside Graeme Swann.
Panesar will now travel back from Manchester today in time to play against Derbyshire at Hove tomorrow.
There is no place for James Taylor - who guested for Sussex in the tour game against Australia - either with Kevin Pietersen recovering from a calf injury to be named in an unchanged team.
