England's Matt Prior is best wicketkeeper-batsman in world, says Bob Willis

Wicketkeepers are often the forgotten men in cricket teams so I was delighted to see Matt Prior named as England's cricketer of the year.

I agree with most of what Bob says BUT Prior has improved but is not the consistent keeper he should be. His glovework is often shoddy and he does not decide whether to stay up or go back he seems to be reactive rather than proactive. His batting has improved (apart from in this Test match) but is not consistent enough. I don't agree that Dhoni has slipped down the world order, he is still a fine batsman in any form of cricket, he's a good captain and a very good consistent batsman. George

Best wicketkeeper batsman? I think AB would have something to say about that. As good a keeper, on a different planet as a batsman! Maybe conveniently, we dont class AB as a keeper batsman!

have you seen AB de Villiers lately he's more consistent with the bat in all forms of cricket and better with the golves...AB is simply a much better all round player than Matt Prior.

Agree with Bob that prior is good, but to say he is better than Dhoni is taking it a bit too far . Dhoni is a class apart when it comes to batting! The most dependable and exiting cricketer of our times!
