Former cricketer and head coach of Karachi Kings, Dean Jones on Thursday spoke to local media about his love for Pakistani food, Karachi fans and Pakistani architecture.
The newly appointed head coach of Karachi Kings is eager to see the only thing he loves, his fans. He said,
“I’m looking forward to working with Karachi and seeing all their fans – that’s one thing I love about Karachi.”
The cricket coach also shared his experience learning about Pakistani food at a Peshawar hotel.
“Us guys in Australia love cooking. I was up at Peshawar, they cooked the beef and chicken so well. I couldn’t get the right marinate of the meat. The great thing in Pakistan is the good food.”
When asked about what he likes to do in his free time, Jones said he likes seeing the mosques, the infrastructure and the buildings.
“I want a Muslim guy to build a wall for me at my home because they sure know how to build,” he added giggling.
Travelling around the world, he said, has given him the chance to see things he wouldn’t normally see at home,
“You’re living the dream.”
As advice for the Karachi Kings for the upcoming PSL, Jones added,
“Fitness is one component – that’s the easiest thing. It’s upto you to use that ability to the best of your game. The other is analytics. I’ve got to make sure the emphasis on the little things are the difference between being mediocre or to being great. Karachi has the chance of being unbelievably successful.”
As long as our players understand the tactics of the opposing team, the ball could be in our court.
After an enlightening conversation, Jones lastly added,
“In this game of T20, you can’t second guess yourself.”
