ABU DHABI: Left-arm spinner Monty Panesar expressed his disappointment over England’s humiliating 72-run defeat against Pakistan in the second Test. Panesar, playing his first Test since Cardiff in the 2009 Ashes, said he was ready to swap his six wickets for England’s win. “It’s nice to get some wickets but I would rather have a none-for and see England win,” said Panesar who added that the team remained confident despite the losses. “The boys are still upbeat and looking forward to the third Test.”
