The End Of Matt
The trouble with being a wicketkeeper is that there is simply too much pressure. It's a well documented fact that men cannot multi-task (case in point: KP - a cricketer and soon to be dad. Too much).
It's now proven too much for Matt Prior, who has been dropped for the Twenty20 World Cup. NWG does feel a little sorry for him. Being usurped by a younger, better version of yourself must suck (and Kieswetter has hair too, salt in the wound).
Kieswetter is a better batsman and a better wicketkeeper. That is not good for one's self esteem.
What NWG can't understand is why Prior has been assured his place in the Test team. You're either a good enough for both or not good enough for either, surely?
Are they giving him a second chance to prove himself? NWG doesn't understand. Can someone please explain?
