Just a point Englandâ€™s selectors might want to consider before they pencil in Matt Priorâ€™s name for the squad to tour Sri Lanka tomorrow.
Here are Matt Priorâ€™s Test figures:
7 matches, 397 runs, average 39.7, 1 century, strike rate 64.86, 20 catches.
And here are Geraint Jonesâ€™ Test figures at the same stage of his career:
7 matches, 337 runs, average 37.4, 1 century, strike rate 59.43, 21 catches.
Iâ€™m not sure what conclusions we can reliably draw from those figures, but itâ€™s quite creepy nonetheless.
