The cricket world is mourning the news of former Australian cricketer Dean Jones has died of a heart attack in Mumbai, India age 59 where he was working as a commentator on television coverage of the Indian Premier League.

Stylish in the middle-order, Jones enjoyed a 10-year international career after rising through the cricketing ranks with Victoria, making his debut for Australia in 1984 and going on to played 52 Tests from 1984 to 1992, averaging 46.55 and winning the Ashes on two occasions.

He was also part of the Australia team that won the World Cup in 1987, beating England in a thrilling final.

In his 164 one-day internationals, Jones averaged 44.61.

Afterwards, as a result of his exertions at the crease, he was admitted to hospital.

Jones also had spells in county cricket with Derbyshire and Durham, and, after retiring from playing, had further careers as a coach and broadcaster.
