Jones still unsure where his long-term future lies

Simon Jones admits his long-term future is up in the air even though a one-month loan deal with Glamorgan is just days away from expiring.

The former England fast bowler is due to return to Hampshire on July 20 after figuring in the Welsh county’s Friends Life t20 campaign.

After a slow start the 32-year-old Jones won the man-of-the match award in Glamorgan’s demolition of Gloucestershire at Bristol on July 10. Glamorgan bowled the home side out for just 81 – the lowest domestic Twenty20 score on the county circuit this year.

 “I will play against Gloucestershire on Friday and see where we go from there,” said Jones, who has taken 10 wickets in ten t20 appearances for the Welsh county. After that I don’t have a clue what’s going to happen.

“It is not up to me because that is Hampshire’s decision. At the end of the day it’s up to Hampshire, they employ me. What will be, will be. We have to wait to see. I have played every day by ear and have kept in touch with Hampshire.

“On the flip side it has been great to be back with Glamorgan and I enjoy my time with both sides. We will have to wait to see what is best for me and we will then decide where we go. There is nothing more I can say at this time because we are not sure what is going to happen.”

Jones admitted it has not been a great campaign for Glamorgan who, going into their final South Group game on July 15, have won just four of 13 completed games so far. “We are a little disappointed with where we have finished,” said Jones.

“We have been close to being in the top four and shown glimpses of what we can do. We have not had the killer instinct to finish things off but that will come with experience.”
