PRIOR FIT FOR ASH BASH

Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

MATT PRIOR has given Eng­land a mas­sive boost with the news he WILL be fit for the sec­ond Ashes Test.

The wicket keeper missed a round of golf on Mon­day due to an Achilles in­jury, lead­ing to fears he wouldn’t make the Lord’s clash with the Aussies.

But he said: “I feel com­pletely fit.

“I didn’t play golf be­cause I didn’t want to strain the Achilles and get it in­flamed.”
