Matt Prior’s unbeaten hundred at Auckland against New Zealand was awarded the TwelfthMan cricketing moment of the year.

TwelfthMan is the official fan community of England cricket. Prior recalled the dying moments of the Test match. When Prior negotiated the final ball of the match, he raised his arms in delight. That stellar performance lifted the spirits of the team.

Prior remembered how there was a tense moment when Monty Panesar took one risky single in their partnership.

Alastair Cook too recalled the match at Auckland and praised Prior for his heroic act.
