The former Three Lions wicketkeeper is still friends with many of the current side and revealed: “There’s a lot that has gone on that I think the England players are quite upset about.
“There has been a lot of chat on the pitch that hasn’t got anything to do with cricket and frankly should not be on a cricket pitch – stuff that hasn’t come out for various reasons.”
There were more heated exchanges between England and Australia players as tempers boiled over on an exciting fourth day in Adelaide.
England bowler James Anderson recently labelled Australia “bullies” and Prior added: “It is not about whingeing. This is the Ashes and it is going to be hard. There will be sledging, there will be conversation and there will be chat, but there is a line that you cannot cross.
“There is an unwritten rule and as long as that is maintained then fine, but I am not sure it has.
“I am not there, so I can’t add detail, but you hear certain things and you hear what has been said and some of it is not right.”
