Islamabad United won two PSL titles under Jones, in his four-season tenure with the franchise.

The 58-year-old was also one of the contenders for the Pakistan’s head coach position, but the former Men in Green’s captain Misbahul Haq got the job.

Jones concluded with indicating that he has some big news coming soon for the fans.
