Profile

Richard Jones has been 'promising' for longer than the duration of many careers. Blessed with sharp pace and an ability to swing the ball - new or old - he has an excellent strike-rate and the potential to be a match-turning performer. But an inability to develop the requisite consistency - his career economy-rate is more than four an over - has sometimes left coaches nervous about picking him in fear that the runs he leak might outweigh the wickets he takes.
