Profile

Matt Prior, a skilled wicketkeeper standing back, pugnacious batsman in the traditional keeping spot of No 7 and a stout upholder of the team ethic, has been a crucial cog in the machine that led England up the Test rankings. He cuts a similar figure to Alec Stewart with his no-nonsense positivity, even if he does not quite possess the same fastidious attention towards his appearance.
