Prior has just improved so much from the leaden footed hard gloved oaf he was a few years ago. He made Geraint Jones look capable when he came into the side so you have to give him credit for the improvements he has made.
Another feather in the cap of a certain Mr Moores who deserves some of the stick he got but in giving Prior a chance, recalling Swann from the wilderness and promoting Anderson to attack leader he made three bold calls which longterm have proved spot on and improved the side massively.

So it's pretty clear that a few of our batsman don't know some of the extreme basics of cricket - stuff that some kids don't even need to be told how to do.
Stuff like "run the first one hard" and "call loud" and "don't watch the ball".
How much blame should the coaching staff take for this?

Was listening to the ABC the other day and Terry Alderman reckons Watson is somebody with very little cricket smarts. He's a damn fine cricketer, but doesn't have great cricket awareness. He makes fundamental, stupid, schoolboy errors. One such example is that virtually every time he is involved in a run out, he's not watching his partner's movements. This should be an instinctive thing but nevertheless the coaches should be reemphasising to him that he needs to watch what his partner is doing.

Have to agree regarding Watson, have heard similar before.
Don't see how you can hold the coaching staff responsible for that run-out, it's just awful horrible cricket. If Tim Nielsen has to worry about getting blokes to call rather than devising plans, then we're going to need 180 coaches on hand.
