`Achilles heel hit` Prior pronounces himself fit for Lord`s Test

Johannesburg: England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has said he would be fine to face Australia in the second Test at Lord`s.

Prior did not play in a planned way on Monday, leading to concerns he had aggravated an Achilles problem during England`s 14-run win in the first Test at Trent Bridge.

Prior told a news conference at Lord`s that he felt completely fit and well to play against Australia.

England is bidding for a third straight series win over Australia, but Prior insisted the team was not under-estimating their arch-rivals.

He said that it was always going to be a tight series and that`s what the team has prepared itself for.

He added that the Australians are fighters, they`re not going to lie down and die at any stage and his team had to fight equally as hard, to get in position to win the game.
