Prior ready to return to India

Prior wants the chance to win back his England Test place

Matt Prior has decided he will return to India with England if they resume their two-Test series.

The Sussex wicketkeeper played in the one-day series that was cut short after terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

His agent Andy Smith told BBC Southern Counties Radio: "He takes the view that he's a professional cricketer and it's his job to go back with the team.

"He's discussed it with both Sussex and his family and along as he gets the right assurances, he'll return".

Prior is desperate to win back his Test place from former Sussex team-mate Tim Ambrose.

Smith added: "The mere fact of being out of the team last year has made him think him how badly he wants to be England's wicketkeeper.

"Despite the results that were had out in India in the one-dayers, he actually performed really well behind the stumps and he doesn't want to miss out on any opportunity to prove he's England's number one."
