Jones, now 42, took 59 wickets in 18 tests for England and 267 wickets in 91 first class games in his career.

His best figures came in the 2005 Ashes series when he took 6-53 while he also took 6-45 for Glamorgan against Derbyshire in first class cricket.

Jones also had spells at Worcestershire and Hampshire towards the end of his career before returning for a final spell with Glamorgan.
