England's Prior targets phenomenal winter

England's Prior targets phenomenal winter

Wicketkeeper Matt Prior says anything short of a World Cup title will be a disappointment for England following the drama of its progress through the group stage and its recent Ashes triumph against Australia.
After upset losses to Ireland and Bangladesh, England scraped through to the knockout stage with a win over the West Indies in the last group game and will meet co-host Sri Lanka in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
Prior, who has been opening the batting, says "we have got three games to win, and we are world champions."
He admitted England had not played its best cricket in the tournament and will be underdogs against a very strong Sri Lanka.
