Why he won: Monty Panesar had it quite bad. He was caught urinating on a bouncer, then was released from his contract with Essex and dropped from the England squad as a result. Things were really tough for Panesar at the time with personal issues also plaguing his life. Time away from cricket might have been a good idea, only it didn't quite work out that way.
What came next: Essex took Panesar under their wing, but he ran into more trouble earlier this year. He was dropped from the Essex squad for a county game after failing to turn up for a team meeting, as per the Daily Mail.
He has since made a handful of appearances for Essex and two appearances for the Essex 2nd XI, where he took four for 76 in an innings in his first game and scored an unbeaten 56 in the second. Panesar's England career looks to be all but over, though, with Moeen Ali rising in prominence as an apt spinner and more than apt batsman.
