A former MCC Young Cricketer who studied at Loughborough and has represented Warwickshire since 2008, Amy Jones suffered early in her career from going tour after tour as reserve keeper to Sarah Taylor, and played only a handful of internationals as a specialist batsman between 2013 and 2016. Included in the 2012 World Twenty20 squad, she eventually made her debut at age 19 against Sri Lanka in the 2013 Women's World Cup, and impressed, adding 83 for the sixth wicket with Jenny Gunn. However, she did not play in another ODI until January 2014.
She has been given more opportunities in Twenty20 Internationals, making her T20 debut against Pakistan in 2013, touring West Indies in late 2013 and going on to be part of the England team that finished as runners-up to Australia in the 2014 ICC Women's World Twenty20 in Bangladesh. She retained her place for the tour of New Zealand in February 2015, but played only three matches on the tour.
However she has continued to impress for the Academy, and was widely seen as unlucky to miss out on selection for the 2015 Ashes Test after making 155* in their warm-up match against the Australians. New coach Mark Robinson promoted her to open in the 2016 T20 series decider against South Africa, and in the absence of Sarah Taylor for the series against Pakistan in June 2016 she was handed the gloves as the new first choice wicketkeeper.

Some of the reactions on Twitter to Virat Kohli's record-equalling hundred during India's chase in Pune
In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?
Stats highlights from the first ODI between India and England in Pune
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
The shot Shakib Al Hasan played to be dismissed on day five at Basin Reserve defies explanation. It also prompts a few questions
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
