About Dean

Dean Jones wrote the book on one-day cricket – literally. He played a new game in which he walked down the pitch to fast bowlers, ran frenetically between wickets and turned fielding into an attacking occupation. He was a natural showman who was for a while as popular as any other player in Australia. Yet, he was also a classic cricketer who once made a triple-century for Victoria and became their record run maker. He averaged 46 in Tests, and in the tied Test at Madras in 1986-87 played what many experts have said was the greatest innings played for Australia (210)… he ended up in hospital on a saline drip after losing seven kilograms!

Since retirement Dean Jones has carved out a niche as a forthright commentator in the subcontinent and locally on TV and radio. Dean’s business interests have included the event management of the opening of Stadium Australia in 1999 before the Sydney Olympics that saw Australia play against the World in soccer and INXS reform for the first time without Michael Hutchence.

Dean was also one of the instigators in the creation of the Indian 20/20 Cricket League that has gone on to become the most lucrative completion in the World.

In 2003 Dean and his wife Jane walked 1150km from Sydney to Melbourne, raising over $1.4 million dollars for the Bone Marrow Donor Institute in aid of their search for a cure for Leukaemia. In 2006 he was awarded the Order of Australia for his service to cricket as a player, coach and commentator, and to the community through fundraising activities for organisations assisting people with cancer.

2012 saw Dean reach the pinnacle of a second sport: what was always a love soon became a challenge when he accepted an offer from the Australian PGA to turn professional. At the age of 51, Dean played against many seasoned campaigners on the Australian Seniors Tour and proving extremely competitive, finishing in the top three place getters on four occasions prior to having to retire due to his cricket commentary commitments.

Dean now travels the world speaking to corporate groups about the fundamentals of goal setting, teamwork and leadership.
