Players from India and Australia paid tribute to former cricketer Dean Jones at their home ground MCG before the ‘Boxing Day’ Test began. Jones’s wife, daughters and legendary Australian cricketer Ellen Border were also present on the occasion. Jones’ family and former Australia captain Border also participated in a farewell on the tea break during the second Test.
Border, Jones’ wife Jane and daughters Agusta and Phoebe walk long from the Melbourne Cricket Ground boundary. He had Jones’ baggy green cap, sunglasses and Kookaburra bat in his hand. They placed these heritages at the ‘Great Southern Stand’ end of the grounds. Later, the twelfth players of both teams, KL Rahul (India) and James Pattinson (Australia), placed these things in a seat adjacent to the boundary.
30,000 spectators gathered on the ground greeted it with applause. Jones died of a heart attack in Mumbai in September this year. He went there for Indian Premier League commentary.
Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee, who was with Jones in the last few hours, told Fox Sports, “It was a perfect tribute to him.” Everyone loves them very much. ‘
