Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings on Saturday paid a touching tribute to Dean Jones, who died in Mumbai in September earlier this year. Players from both franchises, before the start of play, made a human formation in ‘D’ shape to pay tribute to the former Australian cricketer. “Forever in our hearts, Deano #HBLPSLV #PhirSeTayyarHain #MSvKK,” PSL’s official Twitter handle captioned the video on the micro-blogging site.
