Three months after former Australian batsman and commentator Dean Jones breathed his last, he was honoured by Cricket Australia (CA) in Melbourne. It was on Day 1 of the Boxing Day Test against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), on Saturday, when CA honoured Victorian.

CA shared a video on its Twitter handle, where his family members and some CA members were seen on the ground. His wife and daughter walked onto the pitch to place a bat supporting the stumps, with a cap on top, to pay tribute to the legend. The post was captioned, A wonderful tribute to an Aussie legend. Rest easy, Deano #AUSvIND".

It was followed by another tweet from CA, with the picture of the bat and the cap, captioned "The @MCG will always belong to Dean Jones #AUSvIND".

In September this year, the Australian passed away while he was in Mumbai for commentary duty of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He was a renowned top-order batsman for Australia between 1984-94, having scored around 10,000 international runs in over 200 games.

Following his death, his body was flown to Australia, as prior to his last rites, he was given a lap of honour at an empty MCG. ICC posted a video of the same:

Besides his international career, he had a prolific domestic career with Victoria. He also had a couple of stints in county cricket with Durham (1992) and Derbyshire (1996-97).
