Former Australia cricketer and well-known commentator Dean Jones died of a heart attack on Thursday in Mumbai. He was 59. Dean Jones was in India to fulfill his commitments for the host broadcasters of the Indian Premier League. He suffered a massive heart attack at a hotel in Mumbai after 12 PM on Thursday.
