'Forgotten' Prior to 'prove a point' to selectors following Champions Trophy ditch

London, Apr 18 (ANI): England's Test wicketkeeper-batsman Matt Prior has said that he will prove himself by playing one-day cricket in Sussex and show the selectors that they have made a mistake by ditching him from one-day cricket altogether.

According to the Mirror, Prior, who is arguably the finest wicket-keeper batsman when it comes to Test cricket, did not make the extended 30 man squad for the ICC Champions Trophy, which is a significant snub as he has consistently improved as a cricketer despite his unconvincing one day record.

Stating that he will play one-day cricket for the domestic Sussex side, Prior said that he will try to prove himself to the selectors by giving his best performance every time he plays for the team, although he said that he was not sure if that will make the selectors look his way again.

Prior further said that he knew that he has been ditched from playing one-day cricket again after he was left out of the squad for the Champions Trophy.

However, Prior said that he still harbours dreams of being part of a World Cup winning team, despite being left out of England's limited-overs side, adding that he hates watching England cricket teams go on to the field without him.

According to the report, Prior's last outing in a one day shirt was on the ill fated World Cup mission in India in 2011 after giving everything he had in the Ashes. (ANI)
