England A win first one-day match against Bangladesh

It's a great day for last year's county season ones to watch. Matt Prior, the exceptional photography subject, hit 84 not out off 72 balls and the giants' representative in English cricket, Will Jefferson, hit 68 off 52 balls. England A won.

Matt Prior's in with more than a decent chance of being England's wicketkeeper next summer. Paul Nixon's essentially a one-day stop-gap and the selectors will be looking longer-term for the Test spot.

Chris Read and Geraint Jones are out of favour, although you never really know what's going on. This leaves Prior, James Foster and Steven Davies to battle it out before the first Test. Foster's not on the A tour, so we'll count him out. So far on this A tour, Matt Prior's actually been given the gloves ahead of Steven Jones, even though both have been playing. Is that a sign?
