Age: 40 years
Hometown: Johannesburg

Birth Country: South Africa
Batting Style: Right Hand Bat
Team :
Crashing lower order hitter, best test wicket keeper where he shows his calm and skills on standing behind the stumps. A crucial cog in the machine which took the team and leads them up in the ranking. It took a while for him to set him at the international level and represented the team in all the different ages. Including U19 team, making his debut for Sussex in 2001 and his selection into squad against Zimbabwe. His entire career he has been a batsman but he had failed to make an impact with his batting. He is first person to take century on a debut as a wicket keeper. With his unbeaten 126 and followed by 75 at Headingley kept him in the team as a wicketkeeper and as a lower order batsman. Prior can’t be ignored for long in the team because he picked up a pace in his batting an created a good batting average in his domestic series that put him back in the team. Having him in the team, he should be doing just one thing playing a good consistent match and doesn't cheaply loose his wicket.
