Simon Jones 'won't be short of T20 offers'
Simon Jones will have plenty of T20 offers after his performance in the YB40 final, thinks Glamorgan coach Matthew Mott.

Glamorgan's bid to upset the odds at Lord's failed as they succumbed to an 87-run defeat thanks mainly to excellent performances from Chris Read and Samit Patel.
Jones rolled back the years to provide the Glamorgan support with hope in the first session, clocking speeds of almost 90mph in a spell that brought him two wickets for 36 runs.
At 34, Jones has decided that his body can no longer take the toll of first-class and list A games.
Jones will next season become a Twenty20 specialist. As of now he has not secured a contract with a new club - he has not ruled out staying at Glamorgan either - but Mott does not expect the Ashes-winning paceman to be short of offers.
"He definitely put himself in the shop window," said Mott, who is also leaving Glamorgan at the end of the season.
"A lot of people around the world will have watched that game.
"And with the proliferation of Twenty20 competitions around the world, I am sure there will be plenty of interest from elsewhere and within this country.
"He couldn't have marketed himself better than he did.
"It would have been a fitting send off for him to be on the winning team, but he can go out with his head held high.
"It was definitely his best spell of the year."
