Pakistan Fan Asks Dean Jones To "Shut Up", Australian Has A Hilarious Reply
Dean Jones didn't take the trolling lying down and had a hilarious reply for the Pakistani fan.
Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones has been quite a vocal in his support for Pakistan cricket in the past, more so after his coaching stint in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). When the Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team had gained the number one ranking in Tests, Jones had said that he didn't believe in the number one status for India because they had not played Pakistan. Just a few days back, the former Australian batsman had gone as far as claiming Pakistan to be the No.1 fielding side in the world. So on Thursday, it came as a massive surprise when a Pakistani fan turned on Jones, asking him to "shut your mouth" and accusing him of biased commentary.
Jones had been asked by a Pakistan fan whether he would take up the Pakistan coaching job was offered to him to which he replied: "No".
No as I feel and trust Micky Arthur will sort this out. Pakistan's senior players must stand up.. and not rely on just a few. https://t.co/GOb0KVLcar— Dean Jones (@ProfDeano) September 27, 2018
Another Pakistan, Irshad Khan, jumped in and accused Jones of being a biased commentator.
And also plz shut ur mouth in the commentary box.— Irshad khan (@Punter421) September 27, 2018
Any biased commentary again & you'll never see urself in the commentary box in Pak matches
Jones, however, didn't take the abuse lying down, calling the Pakistan fan a "dingbat".
Find the mute button you dingbat! https://t.co/mx3Apm0wjs— Dean Jones (@ProfDeano) September 27, 2018
Other fans including some Pakistanis came to Jones’ defence.

Pakistan were eliminated from the Asia Cup 2018 on Wednesday after a 37-run loss to Bangladesh in the final Super Four match of the tournament. Pakistan had already lost to India in the Super Four and just had one win, their narrow victory over Afghanistan.
The loss for Pakistan meant that Bangladesh will now face India in the Asia Cup final on Friday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
