Wasim Akram dedicates PSL title to this Australian legend

Karachi: Karachi Kings have won the title for the first time in Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020). After the victory, Karachi head coach Wasim Akram dedicated his team’s first title win to the late Dean Jones, who died of a heart attack last month.

Jones, a former Australia batsman, was associated with Karachi Kings as head coach before PSL 2020 and was present during league matches in February-March but the knockout phase of the tournament was postponed due to the Kovid-19 pandemic.

Akram joined the Karachi Kings team as coach after the demise of Dean Jones in Mumbai during the IPL 2020.

Akram (Waseem Akram) told a television channel, ‘This is a year that I cannot forget for a long time. It brought me both sadness and happiness. Last night, Dino (Dean Jones) was missing a lot.

He said, ‘Dino was an integral part of Karachi Kings and PSL. I had to take the post of head coach but I can never replace his passion and commitment ‘.

Karachi Kings won the PSL title for the first time by defeating Lahore Qalandars by five wickets in the final.

Captain Imad Wasim and team member Babar Azam also dedicated PSL title victory to Jones, saying it was his best tribute.
