Former Australia cricketer Dean Jones died in Mumbai on Thursday after suffering a heart attack.

He was 59.

Jones was in Mumbai as a commentator for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.

Jones suffered a massive heart attack in the lobby of the hotel where he was staying during the commentary stint.

It is understood that Brett Lee, his fellow commentator, tried to give him CPR but unsuccessfully.

Jones played 52 Tests for Australia and scored 3631 runs at an average of 46.55 with 11 centuries. He famously hit a double-century against India in the tied Test of 1986.
