    He has no clue.

    I remain to be convinced whether Prior is a better batsman than Craig White. Both had/have obvious problems with their technique and both were excellent players on slower wickets and against spin. Priors footwork is well not very good at all, and whether he can score runs when the ball is moving about remains to be seen. However, even when you take this into account, hes still comfortably a better keeper-batsman than anyone that we have seen since AJ Stewart.

    Hmmm, my dad commented on this but i think he's okay, for me he looks a little dodgy when he bowls his quicker one but i'm not sure if thats just my brain registering its a lot different from his normal action.

    It's surely a piss take that in the country who gave us Robert Nesta Marley, King Tubby & Jimmy Cliff that we're tortured with Chumba-fuggin'-Wamba between overs?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Look Im a pretty big fan of the way Prior has played in the subcontinent, and I have no problem in admitting that he was one of our best batsmen in India. However, if you didnt watch Prior at home in 2007 against India or if you cant open your eyes wide enough right now to observe his blatantly poor footwork especially on the drive, then I cant help you. It remains to be seen how this affects his game against the moving ball.

    As far as Craig White is concerned, he has a fairly decent record in the subcontinent for a number 7 and even though he perhaps isnt as accomplished as Prior against spin he did admirably better than anyone expected.

    "I get knocked down but I get up again". Somehow less apt these days than when Patrick Patterson was bowling in 1986 and Ambrose and Walsh in 1998

    I've no problem with Craig White. In his second coming (after he fell into the ditch and hit his head) he was a revelation - a good player, and particularly a good bowler - and proved me, for one, completely wrong.

    As for my eyes, they're wide shut mate.

    Might not be a bad idea to bring on Fidel Edwards against Fred at the moment.
