London: England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has said that helping England to a fourth successive Ashes series victory would be the biggest thing in his career.

According to the BBC, Prior pointed out that those days when the team used to think that they were going to Australia again, and were going to get beaten up, was gone.

He said that the plan was to go over there, win and win well.

Having recovered from the humiliation of a 5-0 whitewash in 2006-07, England regained the Ashes in 2009 and on their last visit down under three years ago claimed their first victory on Australian soil since 1986-87, the report said.

He added that the experience of beating Australia in 2010-11 was hugely important and he looked back at the memories of travelling to Australia, adding that they were all great memories.
