Simon Jones uncertain over Glamorgan future

Former England fast bowler Simon Jones has said he does not know whether he will remain with Glamorgan beyond his current loan deal.

Jones, on loan from Hampshire until 16 July, was given the man-of-the-match award as Glamorgan beat Gloucestershire by 10 wickets in the t20.

The 32-year-old admitted he would not be averse to a return but said the decision would be taken by others.

"I've not got a clue to be honest. That's not up to me," said Jones.

"At the end of the day that's up to Hampshire, they employ me. What will be, will be. We have to wait to see.

"I've played everything by ear since I've been here and to be fair Hampshire have been very good to me.

"They've kept in touch every day and on the other side it's been great to be back at Glamorgan.

"I've enjoyed my time at Glamorgan and I enjoy my time at Hampshire. I think we've got to decide what's best for me and then we'll decide where I go."

Jones, who has 18 months remaining on his Hampshire contract, captured two wickets as Glamorgan secured a comfortable 10 wicket victory over Gloucestershire at Bristol in the t20.

But the victory, their fourth of the competition, came too late to keep Glamorgan's hopes alive of making the quarter-finals.

Both sides will meet again at Swalec Stadium on Friday in Glamorgan's final match of this season's campaign.

"We've got one game left and hopefully we'll win that and then we will finish in a respectable place in the table," said Jones, who has taken 10 wickets in 10 t20 games for Glamorgan.

"We're a good side but it just hasn't shown in some of the results we've had. I think we've been very, very close to being in the top four.

"We've shown glimpses of what we can do [but] we haven't quite had the killer instinct to kill people off.

"But that's going to come with experience for the younger lads."
