No point in crying over spilled milk, says Matt Prior

"We are honest enough to admit we did not get that right. We knew the wicket was going to turn a bit. I think we got a little bit ahead of ourselves and panicked a bit," said Matt Prior.

Ahmedabad: England may have their backs to the wall in the first cricket Test against India, but wicketkeeper-batsman Matt Prior insisted that they were "still in the game".

After being bowled out out for 191 to give India a huge 330-run first-innings lead, England staged a fightback through skipper Alastair Cook's unbeaten 74, which took them to 111 for no loss at close on day three.

"It was a shocker to lose wickets quickly and was disappointing. As a professional you have to look ahead and take positives. The way (Nick) Compton and Cookie (Alastair Cook) went about their task this afternoon was fantastic. We are behind but are still in the game," said Prior.
