KARACHI: PSL franchise Karachi Kings expressed deep shock at the sudden demise of their head coach Dean Jones.
“The community lost a true solider of the game passionately in love with the sport he both played and later went on to commentate on as well as coach; while the Karachi Kings have lost their guide, friend and motivator through the ordeals of the game both on and off the field,” the franchise said in a statement. “Deano was strong advocate of player’s rights and game development, extraordinary game commentator, avid golfer, champion coach, and a loving, committed family man, has left behind a void that will be impossible to ever fill.
“Even though he joined the Karachi Kings family just a year ago, he embodied the fighting spirit and pursuit of excellence this team stands for, quickly becoming the bedrock of the values each member of the Karachi Kings family aspired to. We’ll miss you.”
