It is my great pleasure to chat to champion Australia and Victoria batsman Dean Jones on this episode of Lessons Learnt with the Greats. Deano was a trailblazer in the one-day game and was an integral part in Australia's wins in the 1987 World Cup and 1989 Ashes series. I loved watching him play when I was a youngster and feel extremely privileged to speak to him and tap into his vast wisdom in all facets of life. Enjoy!
