London:England paceman Simon Jones is a doubtful starter for Sunday's NatWest triangular series match against Australia at Bristol after sustaining an injury in a warm-up game before his side's lung-opener against Bangladesh on Thursday, which the hosts won handsomely by ten wickets.

The 27-year-old right-arm bowler, who is no stranger to injuries, will undergo a scan on his right knee.

His availability for the Sunday's game will be known only after that.

It may be worth mentioning that Jones had suffered a knee injury on the tour of Australia in 2003 and was consigned to the sidelines for over a year.

Jones has appeared in 14 Tests, picking up 41 sticks at an average of 31.41 with a career-best of returns of five for 57 against West Indies at Port of Spain last year.
