Profile

Prior Jones was a useful medium-fast bowler who could move the ball both ways, but one who lost most of his 20s to the war years and then his 30s as a bit-part player to Ramadhin and Valentine. He made his Test debut in 1947-48 when he took 4 for 54 at Bridgetown, enjoyed a fairly successful tour of India the following winter, and he was expected to play a big part on the 1950 tour of England, but as it was he made only two appearances and did little more than take the shine off the ball in either. His final Test came in Australia in 1951-52. He was a dogged tailender and an excellent fielder.
