Prior told the paper that he and the team’s security officer, Terry Minish, pulled the man away from the edge of Pyrmont Bridge in Darling Harbour and along with pace bowler Broad, spent an hour talking to him before police arrived.
“We just did what anybody would do in that situation,” Prior said.
“We were trying to help a bloke who was struggling and in a bad way. I look back and I’m just glad we left the bar when we did and we were there for him.”
The man, who The Times reported is from Cheltenham, had thrown his telephone, passport and wallet into the water and apparently did not recognise the cricketers.
Following the incident Broad tweeted that he was "proud" of Prior's actions.
"@MattPrior13 is a best friend of mine and I'm very proud of him. It was a tough situation but so glad he was there."

A naked Australian man who became stuck in a washing machine as part of an ill-conceived practical joke had to be freed by police using olive oil as a lubricant.
The man, identified only as "Laurence," told Australia's Fairfax Radio that he was on his way to take a shower on Saturday when he decided to climb into the top-loading machine, reportedly to surprise his partner.
He then realised he could not budge and yelled out to his friend for help, who called the police.
Rescuers tried in vain to pull Laurence from the machine, and eventually grabbed a bottle of olive oil to help lubricate his escape.
The oil worked and he popped out, although Laurence said he was disappointed that rescuers used his good olive oil.
