Monty Panesar: BBC Sports Personality 2006?

After his performance in the third Test yesterday, Monty’s odds have been slashed.

Monty Panesar has been slashed from 5/1 to 7/2 favourite with William Hill to win the BBC TV Sports Personality of the Year Award comic/swimmer David Walliams after his latest three wicket haul as England dismissed Pakistan to win the Test Match. Hills also make comic/swimmer David Walliams 7/2 joint favourite and then offer Steven Gerrard at 9/2 third favourite for the Award, and also offer 8/1 Jenson Button; 10/1 Ricky Hatton; 12/1 Joe Calzaghe; Dean Macey; 16/1 Andy Murray; 20/1 Kevin Pietersen; Colin Montgomerie.

Andrew Flintoff, of course, won it last year. But never before have two cricketers won the award in successive years…
