Profile

Had his career not been interrupted twice, Closs Jones might have won Test honours with England. The off-spinner, who had made his debut in 1934, hit the headlines in 1937, with five wicket hauls against Kent, Lancashire and Sussex, followed by 10/94 against the New Zealanders at Cardiff as Glamorgan defeated the tourists by 6 wickets.
