Bowling mentor and the President of Karachi Kings, Wasim Akram, has said that no one in the dressing room will take the position of the late Australian legend. He added that every person associated with Karachi Kings will miss Jones and that Karachi will leave his seat empty in the dressing room as a tribute to him.

The former captain talked highly of Jones and his love for Pakistan. “He talked about Pakistani cricket, culture, food, upcoming talent, and its hospitality everywhere he went in the world,” Akram said.

Dean Jones had been an integral part of the PSL since its inception. Initially, he had been the head coach of Islamabad United for four seasons before he took over Karachi Kings for the current season. He was the most successful coach in the history of the tournament and had led Islamabad United to win two titles in PSL 1 and PSL 3.
