LAHORE: Pakistan cricketers have expressed their sorrow over the demise of former Australia batsman Dean Jones.

The 59-year-old was in India for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as a commentator where he reportedly suffered a fatal heart attack on Thursday.

Jones led Islamabad United to their second Pakistan Super League (PSL) title as the head coach.

He was the coach of the Karachi Kings franchise during the PSL 2020 and was expected to return to Pakistan for the remainder of the matches in November later this year.
