Panesar married his wife three years ago
England left-arm spinner Monty Panesar’s marriage to Gursharan Rattan, who is a pharmacist, has come to an end after a secretive, but hostile, divorce battle.
Panesar’s name was splashed all over the sports pages recently after he was caught urinating on nightclub bouncers in Brighton.
“Monty was devastated by the breakdown of his marriage and is still coming to terms with his recent divorce,” the England-based Sunday Mirror quoted a source as saying. “His personal struggles have been a direct result of that.”
A spokesperson for Panesar also confirmed the cricketer’s divorce.
According to reports, Panesar’s friends blame his wife’s family for making their marriage “increasingly difficult”.
Panesar married his wife three years ago in a traditional Sikh ceremony.
Just after getting married, Panesar praised his wife for the “greater stability” she gave him when he was representing England.
