What is people's take on Prior? Lots of talk that he's got to go, but it got me thinking that that's all a bit harsh. He's in a trough (the first since he became a real fixture in the team) and it happens to every player. Do you really think cutting him loose is the answer? Bairstow is really a batsman who can keep a bit, so does that really answer the question? Interested to read some thoughts.

Very good keeper, one of the best in the world.

Going through a lull with the bat and seems his concentration is dipping when fielding.

A good rest will do him good.

Congratulations to Australia. (though it pains me to say it)
They have won every day of the series so far. Has been very disappointing to wake up every morning to 5 live sports extra charting another terrible night for English cricket.
Australia have played some great cricket and it has been very entertaining to watch Warner / Watto / Haddin smashing it to all parts or Mitch letting fly (bouncers and verbals!).
Let's hope that this is the low point for this tour and that the England side can give the travelling support at Melbourne / Sydney something to cheer about.

Roots edge was an odd one, I presume the only reason he thought he might not have hit it was because he hit the floor at the same time.

suspect he thought that he had squeezed the ball into the turf
