Ashes: Spinner Monty Panesar a doubt for fifth Test in Sydney

Monty Panesar

England spinner Monty Panesar is a doubt for the final Ashes Test in Sydney because of a calf injury.

Durham leg spinner Scott Borthwick could come in for his Test debut or Kent off-spinner James Tredwell might play after joining the tour party.

England say Panesar, 31, has a "tight calf" and has not been ruled out, but will be assessed at training.

Australia are 4-0 up going into the final Test, which starts at about 23:30 GMT on Thursday.
