London: England's saviour in the second innings, Matt Prior on Sunday said that it will take a lot of effort from his team to win the first Test against India at Lord's.
"There are a lot of runs in the wicket. There are no devils, it's a pretty good deck and still has a huge amount of runs in it. Their batting is very strong and a lot of hard work is ahead of us," stated Prior whose unbeaten 103 was the cornerstone around which England scored 269 for six in their second innings and set India a target of 458.
"It's a kind of wicket where you could go for an hour without the wicket and then could have a silly hour where you pick 3-4 wickets. We would do it the way we always do - trying to do well in the first half an hour, then hour and from then on sessions."
