Monty Panesar: World Cricket's Clown of the Month, August 2013

Monty Panesar had a pretty rough August. He was fined for urinating on a bouncer and subsequently released from his contract at Sussex and dropped from the England squad

Sussex released a statement, announcing that Panesar would become a free agent at the end of September, but allowed him to join a club on loan for the remainder of the season. 

The club’s investigation into the recent incident which took place on Monday 5th August has been concluded, and both parties have reached agreement. He will become a free agent as of Friday 27th September 2013. Additionally, Sussex has agreed to Monty’s request that he be allowed to play on loan for a club in Division Two of the County Championship until the end of this season.

Panesar wasn't the only one to take a leak in public in August, though: A number of the England players were also caught with their pants down during their Ashes celebrations at The Oval. The England and Wales Cricket Board subsequently issued an apology for that incident

Sadly for Panesar, his incident was more serious and he therefore came in for the most criticism.  

Here's a timeline of events, including what I want to see unfold from here.
