Never forget that double century he scored in India, when suffering food poisoning and batting with Border who told him if he wanted to go off a Queenslader was in next if he wanted to puss out. He was on a drip that night in hospital when Border found out. No tougher example of an Aussie sportsman.
Been watching him play in a few of the shortened highlight games on Fox
At his best was great to watch …great footwork to the spinners
And the innings in India pure guts …
Remember when he asked Curtley to take off his white wrist bands
RIP Dean Jones …my condolensces to his family and friends
My mates 40th is this Saturday, as a gift we tried to get his childhood heroes to film a short video to say happy birthday. Some we had to pay, Dean Jones did it for free and has it filmed in the studio of the show he was doing in India, even bringing in Brett Lee at the end. He filmed it only 3 days ago. Such a shock.
