Matt Prior Promises to Hit Back Hard at Kevin Pietersen's Attack.
England wicketkeeper Matt Prior yesterday, pledged to respond to former international team-mate Kevin Pietersen's claims that he was "back-stabbing" and a "bad influence" on the team.
Pietersen made the accusations, ahead of the release of his autobiography on Thursday.
The South Africa-born batsman, axed by England earlier this year, claimed there had been a "bullying" culture under former head coach Andy Flower, but saved his most stinging criticism for Prior.
Responding on Twitter, Prior wrote: obviously sad to see the accusations against me this morning, and I WILL have my right of reply! However today is not the day, and Twitter is not the place for it!
