Profile

Keeping wicket for Kent brings with it a certain weight of history. Ames, Evans, Knott, Downton, Marsh is a formidable backstory, but Geraint Jones has earned his place in the dynasty. With thirteen seasons behind him he has established himself as an elder statesman of the Kent squad, and in James Tredwell's absences with England in 2013 he was a natural selection as stand-in captain. He took 41 victims behind the stumps in Championship matches, and scored over 400 runs.
