A video of former Australian batsman Dean Jones talking about the famous tied Test match against India in 1986. The Australian scored a double century which is considered as one of the best Test innings by an Australian.


Suffering from dehydration in the oppressively hot and humid conditions, Jones was frequently vomiting on the pitch. He wanted to go off the field “retired ill” which led his captain Allan Border to say that if he could not handle the conditions, “then let's get a real Australian”.


Jones was motivated by his skipper’s comments to score a double century, a moment considered by many as a defining moment of his career.
