    nah jesus good on him. People go through various stages in their lives when they're not happy with themselves, their actions or some other variable. Hope the guy pulls things together.

    Apparently the whole team were there but Prior was the only one to do anything:

    Cook: couldn't work out a tactic or plan to help
    Carberry: made a start but couldn't quite get there to help
    Root: just stood there with a stupid smile
    KP: too self absorbed to notice something was wrong
    Bell: Dunno, meh
    Stokes: Tried to help but kept knocking things with his hands
    Broad: too scared
    Swann: got scared and ran away
    Anderson: arm was broken trying to help
    Panesar: wanted to help but Cook wouldn't let him

    Really top stuff from Prior. Anyone who's been in his situation before will know it's not easy to think of appropriate things to say at such a time. It's good that the rest of them didn't get involved as well.
