Harrison blow leaves Glamorgan short
Harrison will undergo surgery on his lower back in the next two weeks and Adrian Shaw, Glamorgan's coach, told Wales on Sunday: "It's a huge disappointment because Dave was going to spearhead the attack and we were looking for him to get 50 or 60 wickets."
Jones isn't considered quite up to four-day fitness yet and is expected to play for Glamorgan's second eleven, against Lancashire, at Swansea. His return from the knee injuries which have plagued him for the past 18 months has been carefully managed with two Friends Provident outings in the early stages of the season.
If Glamorgan do opt for a second overseas player, it will signal a complete turnaround after they were facing a season without any due to financial constraints. However, contributions from supporters allowed them to recruit Jimmy Maher, the Queensland opener, who is due to arrive shortly. Matthew Elliott is currently acting as short-term cover before Maher joins.
