Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Islamabad United have decided to part ways with head coach Dean Jones after a journey that lasted four years since the inaugural edition. The former Australian cricketer made the announcement on Twitter where he admitted he was a bit disappointed to bid farewell to the side.
“After discussions with the owners of Islamabad United, they have decided to go with a new coach this year. Slightly disappointed after the fact that we won two championships and won six playoffs out of eight. It was a wonderful four years as we got to see some great kids go on to play for Pakistan. I wish the franchise all the best,” Jones stated in the video clip.
Islamabad United claimed two PSL titles – the most for any team in the competition – under Jones’ coaching stint. Recently, he was named among the top contenders for the head coach position of the Pakistan cricket team, that eventually went to former skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, whom Jones had coached while he was at Islamabad United.
