Jonesí absence setback for England: Younis
10/8/2005
 

          KARACHI, Oct 7 (Reuters): The forced withdrawal of England fast bowler Simon Jones from the Pakistan tour this winter has brought relief to some Pakistani batsmen.
Jones, England's best bowler in their recent Ashes triumph with 18 wickets at 21 apiece, has been ruled out of the tour with an injured right ankle.
Pakistani Vice Captain Younis Khan said Friday that Jones' absence would be a big setback for the touring team.
"It is good for us and bad for England. Because he was the one bowler who really mastered the art of bowling reverse swing at a good pace in the Ashes series," Khan told Reuters.
England are to play three tests and five one-day internationals in Pakistan. They arrive on October 26 and the first test in Multan starts on November 12.
Jones led the England bowling against Australia, causing their batsmen numerous problems with his pace and ability to reverse swing the ball.
