Australian Cricket's governing body has apologised after a picture was posted on its Twitter account of four Sikh men with the caption: "Will the real Monty Panesar stand up?"
Cricket Australia posted the image of the unnamed men dressed in Teletubby costumes, none of whom are the England spin bowler, shortly before the start of the second Test.
The picture had been circulated on the internet last month.
Cricket Australia deleted the tweet within half an hour and tweeted: "We apologise for any offence caused with our previous tweet.
"That was certainly not the intention. It has been removed."
Australia closed the first day of the second Test on 273 for 5.
