Panesar back in England squad for Ashes tour

Panesar back in England squad for Ashes tour

England has made no surprise choices in its squad for the defense of the Ashes against Australia, with Monty Panesar, Chris Tremlett and Steven Davies winning the race for three of the backup roles in the 16-man test party.
Panesar, whose most recent appearance for England was in last year's home Ashes series, has been recalled as the deputy to first-choice offspinner Graeme Swann.
Lanky pace bowler Tremlett is back in the squad after winning his last cap in 2007 against India and Davies will be the reserve wicketkeeper behind Matt Prior.
The rest of the squad picked itself, with selectors choosing seven batsmen, two wicketkeepers, five fast bowlers and two spinners.
The first test of the five-match series begins in Brisbane on Nov. 25.
