Monty Panesar, England’s Sikh of Tweak, has been a bowling sensation for all of 30 seconds, but he has already signed a book deal to write his autobiography.
The deal, believed to be worth about $500,000, comes on the back of successful publishing ventures by team mates Andrew Flintoff and Vaughan. Freddies book sold 250,000 copies and Vaughan’s 100,000.
Striker Wayne Rooney, for one signed a deal worth about $10 million, but the first volume sold just 13,700 copies. Reviews suggested this figure was generous.
The Times, said this was not surprising “ given that its most revealing fact is that his house has six bedrooms and a big kitchen, which is very modern and greyish”.
You know it makes sense.
