Sad Excellent batsman, one day innovator (running down wicket to quicks) and very entertaining commentator, also played for my local team Durham & made Derby a formidable outfit when captaining them finishing 2nd in the old 18 team table.

a superb fielder as well as a excellent batsmen. I best remember his as part of the 89 Ashes touring team - one of the best I've seen - thrashing Gower's England. Marsh, Taylor, Boon, Border, Jones, S Waugh we jusyt couldn't them out. Then once they'd finished Alderman stepped in to mop up England's batsmen.

Didn't see much of him play but have listened to his t20 commentary for many hours in the past few years and he was definitely one of the best

Former Australia batsman Dean Jones has died at the age of 59.

Jones suffered a heart attack in Mumbai, where he was working as a commentator on television coverage of the Indian Premier League.

Stylish in the middle-order, Jones 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.

He is perhaps best remembered for his innings of 210 in the tied match between Australia and India in 1986.

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.

Cricket Australia chairman Earl Eddings said: "Dean Jones was a hero to a generation of cricketers and will forever be remembered as a legend of this great game.

"Anyone who watched cricket in the 1980s and 1990s will fondly recall his cavalier approach at the crease and the incredible energy and passion he brought to every game he played."

Former England captain Michael Vaughan tweeted: "This is so sad ... A hero of mine has gone far too soon ... always offered so much advice to us younger players when he played at Derby."

Aaron Finch, Australia limited-overs captain, wrote: "Still in shock hearing the news of Deano's passing. Thoughts are with Jane and the family at this incredibly tough time. A great man with an amazing passion for the game."

It's tough enough when a family members passes away, even tougher when they pass away thousands of miles away from home. Sad
