London:England fast bowler Simon Jones is set to return from injury when his county cricket club Glamorgan take on Northamptonshire in a pre-season friendly.

The 27-year-old Welshman, one of the star performers in last summer's surprise Ashes success, is confident he has recovered from a knee injury which forced him off England's winter tour of India.

"We've got a friendly at Northampton, and I'm fit and hoping to go there," said Jones, who on Tuesday received his award as one of Wisden's five cricketers of the year from his father and former England bowler Jeff.

Jones has had little cricket since an ankle injury ruled him out of the fifth Test at The Oval where England clinched the Ashes.

"I've done a lot of hard work over the winter and I'm really looking forward to the first match," he added.
