omgbroady:

just wanted to say how much I’m going to miss matt prior - I know he hasn’t retired, but I don’t think he’ll ever get back into the england squad now. I just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed watching him play, watching him make runs, take amazing catches and be part of a winning team. I just wanted to say how much I’ll miss the smile on his face when everything went to plan, and how much I’ll miss his little sense of humour and his generally positive attitude. I’ll miss sky sports filming the window at lords every time he gets out, and the jokes about the jellybeans that he didn’t throw. I’ll miss the way he always took the game to the bowlers, and his undeniable energy behind the stumps.

but most of all, I’ll miss the unbelievable cricketing talent of that bearded south african - he was part of the first england team I ever truly fell in love with, and the england team I still owe my heart to.

~ thank you, matt prior ~

Summing it up beautifully there, Amy…. <3

whispering1death asked: May I ask you what your XI would be for the 3rd test at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday?

Well from the squad that’s been announced I’d pick the same batting lineup, obviously Buttler comes in for Prior, but then I do think there might be a bowling change or two needed. Depends on how fit Jimmy and Broady are I guess. I’d be really tempted to play Woakes, but who he’d come in for would probably depend on what the pitch is like. So I can’t really give you an XI right now, there’s too many ifs and buts!

Anonymous asked: What time is the selection announced?

Sorry anon, I was working when you sent this! I wouldn’t have known even if I had seen this tbh, it was delayed anyway. I have no idea why they took so long to announce a grand total of two unsurprising changes….

Anonymous asked: I seriously will be so pissed if Johnny gets a call up instead of Joseph....

I would be incredibly surprised if that happened, anon. When they called Jos up before Trent Bridge as cover for Matty that kinda showed that he was next in line. If they thought he was good enough then, there’s no reason why they’d have changed their mind. If they didn’t select him, I highly doubt it would be in favour of Jonny. It would be more likely in favour of a more experienced wicketkeeper, which Jonny is not.

I’M GOING TO GET AT THE GROUND REALLY EARLY WITH MY CAMERA TO SNEAK SOME SHOTS OF HIM GETTING HIS TEST CAP. Unless they play Johnny that is, then I’ll be sad and angry.

YES YOU SHOULD DO THAT. Given that Jos was the one called in as cover for Matty before the first test I can’t see them going with anyone else now….

abbcce:

Prior should be remembered as a three times Ashes wicketkeeper and the wicketkeeper who helped England reach number one in the world. He deserves better than to be remembered as the wicketkeeper whose injuries caused him to struggle for form for so long. It would be great to see him come back stronger, but if it does not happen, he has been one of England’s best players in one of the best eras of English cricket.

Matty’s stepping down and I know it’s the right decision and I saw it coming but that doesn’t mean I’m not having a good ol’ cry right now. I know he’s not actually retiring but I can’t see him getting his place in the team back after this so yeah, it’s a pretty sad day.

However, this means an almost certain Jos debut and that is pretty fecking exciting. Lots of conflicting emotions right now. Give me a few days to mourn Matty and I’ll be bouncing around the room because JOS IS GOING TO BE IN THE TEST TEAM.
