London, June 7: England wicketkeeper Matthew Prior has apologized to members of the august Marylebone Cricket Club after accidentally showering them with broken glass in a fit of temper.
Furious at being run out for 4 on the final day of England's second test against Sri Lanka, Prior broke a dressing room window in the Lord's Pavilion to send glass tumbling down on the neatly dressed members below.
England team spokesman James Avery says Prior threw his glove, which ricocheted off a kit bag and knocked some bats resting on the windowpane.
Avery says the bats broke a 30-centimeter (12-inch) hole in the glass, adding that the only injury was a cut to the ankle of a female spectator.
Avery says "it was an accident and Matt Prior has apologized." AP
