    Simon Jones

    Do you think England need him we all agree that England havn't played well since the 2005 Ashes could that have something to do with Jone's not being in the team.

    That's a strong bowling line up anf we played with five bowlers in the ashes 2005.

    England have a strong enough batting line up it's the bowling they need help with.

    Mahmood need's a bit of experience and after a while I think we'll have a great bowler in Mahmood.

    He's worth nothing at the moment, he hardly takes wickets tbh.

    He could be a great bowler, he just needs time in CC.

    Equally had Jones not been injured he might have fallen victim to Flintoff Syndrome and not bowled anywhere near as well since then.

    Jones is overrated IMO. He bowled sensationally in the first-innings of Old Trafford and Trent Bridge in 2005 and did more than most to win that series, but he hasn't done much else of note except get gifted good figures with ordinary bowling - some of the time.

    Equally, you'd be a fool if you didn't wish he'd played instead of the Plunketts of this World...
