Monty Panesar
Age: 24 Nationality: English
Sport: Cricket

2006 highlight: Sixteen wickets in three Tests against Pakistan.

The first Sikh to play cricket for England brought a breath of fresh air to the game.

He shone in the summer Tests, taking eight wickets in the second encounter against Pakistan at Old Trafford.

And the left-arm spinner became a cult figure with his cheery outfield antics and sheer love of the game.

Panesar's accuracy and guile helped book a spot on the Ashes tour down under.
