MUMBAI, Sep 25: Former Australia batsman and the IPL (studio) commentator Dean Jones, 59, who died on Thursday noon after a massive heart attack in his hotel room in Mumbai was certain to remain present during the Lanka Premier League (LPL) in Sri Lanka.
This was revealed by Anil Mohan, Founder & CEO IPG Group, the company which has been awarded the rights to host the tournament in Sri Lanka.
"After his IPL commentary assignment, he was scheduled to arrive in Sri Lanka for the LPL commentary", Anil Mohan, speaking exclusively over the telephone from Dubai, said.
"He was a mentor and had hand holded me throughout my professional life. Still remember meeting him for the first time in Sri Lanka. We have worked together for over 18 years across multiple international series all over the world".
"He was one of the best cricketing commentators that I have ever seen and an even better human being. He was on IPG’s advisory board and was instrumental in every success of IPG. The world of Cricket has lost an Icon and it is an irreplaceable void", he further added.
Jones was a member of the Tied Test against India. "I very well remember his 200 and odd runs he scored despite being ill on the first day", Vikram Raju, the umpire of the Tie Test said from Bangalore.
"He is a regular visitor at the IPL and the KPL. I met him last year when he was in Bangalore. He was a very decent nice man", Raju added.
