"You talk about putting your foot on someone's throat and not letting go. I think we have done that very well," England topscorer Matt Prior said.
... obviously he said that rather more than four days ago :-)
It's nice to see such a turnaround in form, for a while I was thinking that the umpires were going to become England's leading wicket-takers. Not that I'm bitter ...
Actually, I'm curious about that turn of phrase - "putting your foot on someone's throat". Anyone know the origin of that phrase, or some phrase that it might have been based on ?
