England also selected uncapped trio of Yorkshire batsman Gary Ballance, Durham all-rounder Ben Stokes and former Ireland seamer Boyd Rankin for a tour where they they will bid to win a fourth straight Ashes series against arch-rivals Australia.
     
Panesar has long been regarded as England's second-best spinner behind off-break bowler Graeme Swann.
     
However, the 31-year-old Panesar was fined by police for urinating in public after he was ejected from a Brighton nightclub on August 5 and then effectively sacked by south coast county Sussex.
     
He has though since played for Essex on loan while the woeful Test debut of Lancashire left-arm spinner Simon Kerrigan in the drawn final match of the recent Ashes series -- which England won 3-0 -- at The Oval in south London, strengthened Panesar's case for a recall.
     
England are due to arrive in Perth on October 25, with the first Test due to start at Brisbane's Gabba ground on November 21.
