Panesar caught out trying to get blonde to his room

England spinner Monty Panesar was caught out trying to tempt a blonde to his room at the team’s hotel using phone dating app Tinder after England slumped to a humiliating defeat in Melbourne.

Panesar chatted with an American backpacker in her late twenties four hours after bowling in England’s fourth Test in Melbourne, the Daily Mirror reports.

Panesar, who is divorced, had asked Alison to meet him in his hotel apartment rather than a bar as England team’s management had banned the players from heading out so they could reflect on their poor form.

Alison, who declined a meeting with the spinner, said she wanted to talk to him about cricket, but he seemed interested getting me over to the hotel.

She added Panesar is active every day on Tinder.
