Matt Prior backs beleaguered umpires for doing `fantastic job` under pressure in first Ashes Test

London: England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has defended umpires following severe Ashes Test criticism, insisting umpires do a `fantastic job` under intense scrutiny, as Stuart Broad`s controversial not out decision receives comments from more players.

The International Cricket Council announced that seven mistakes were made by the umpiring team at Nottingham, although four were corrected by the decision review system and Australia were unable to challenge the Broad decision because they had already used their DRS allowance.

The report said that Prior admitted he had confidence in the umpires but was not so sure about the Hot Spot at Trent Bridge, adding that he was worried that Haddin`s final-ball edge would go undetected.
