Former Australian batsman and cricket coach Dean Jones is one of the most familiar foreign faces among the Pakistani cricket fans, thanks to his Pakistan Super League (PSL) coaching stints with the Islamabad United and Karachi Kings in Pakistan.

Jones, who was not known for his abundant talent as a cricketer, but his number of controversial remarks in the world cricket, had coached the Islamabad United to 2 PSL in 2016 and 2018.

Last year, there was a lot of buzz around the Aussie replacing Mickey Arthur as Pakistan head coach after he was sacked following dismal World Cup campaign in 2019, though eventually, former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq took over the reins of the national side last year.

Well, the matter has once come into the light when a Twitter user asked the former Afghanistan coach about his thought of coaching the Men in Green and Jone's response was quite unexpected.

The renowned commentator has also joined the bandwagon as he had a Question-Answer session with his fans on Wednesday (March 26) amid the lockdown due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

As the entire world forced to stay in self-isolation within the confines of their home to avoid the spread of the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, almost every public figure took to social media to interact with their fans and Jones was no different.

With the COVID-19 pandemic unleashing its wrath on the entire world, the fast-growing deadly virus impacted the sporting world besides human life and people around the world are forced to stay indoors to be safe from this deadly virus and help healthcare system in this challenging time.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, Jones was asked by a fan “What about coaching Pakistan?” and his straightforward answer - “It will never ever happen” that would have certainly left many open-mouthed.
