Wife trouble for 'whiz' kid Monty

Panesar's wife had filed a non-molestation order against him in 2011.

Another twist was added to bladder-happy Monty Panesar`s recently torrid life as it was reported that his former wife had been granted a non-molestation order that she had filed to keep him away.

This follows the troubled England bowler's last-week sacking by county Sussex after he urinated on nightclub bouncers, while in an inebriated condition.

According to the Mirror, Gursharan Rattan`s request was granted by a judge a few months after Panesar was arrested over allegations of a public flare-up with her outside a pub in 2011.

Panesar had then been released without charges, but Rattan, a pharmacist, divorced him nonetheless. The report went on to blame domestic troubles for Panesar's loss of form and his subsequent ejection from the England squad.

A devout Sikh Panesar had recently admitted that he started drinking since his divorce last year.
