Geraint Jones brought in the victory of the 2005 Ashes contributing vital runs at key moments. He clung on, however, to the one chance that really mattered, at the very end of England's two-run win at Edgbaston, and emerged from the series more or less in credit - if not with his place secure. In the 2003 season - Alec Stewart's last - Jones scored the best part of 1000 runs at an average of more than 50. Jones was rewarded with a call-up to England's Test squad to tour West Indies, and after displacing Read behind the stumps in the fourth and final Test in Antigua, he cemented his place with a thrilling century against New Zealand at Headingley, where his sixth-wicket alliance with Flintoff had England fans rubbing their hands with delight.
