Jones, 59, died of a 'massive' heart attack at the Trident Hotel in Mumbai on Thursday, leaving the cricket world in shock and mourning the loss of one of the game's legends.

'I posted a picture on social media, and he texted me straight away, with a picture of him and Brett Lee and all the other commentators,' Warne said.

The former bowler paid tribute to the 'innovator' and 'maverick' in a written piece published by News Corp on Saturday.

The 51-year-old recalled the pair's 30 years of friendship and their memories both on and off the pitch.

'I've got so many memories of just being with Deano, in a team environment, talking, about everything, him doing and saying silly things and everyone ripping him apart,' Warne wrote.

Warne said he remembered rooming with Jones for his first Test. The pair would sit and talk about the game, with Warne 'soaking it all in'.

Dean Jones leaves behind a cricketing legacy that revolutionised the sport

  Dean Jones leaves behind a cricketing legacy that revolutionised the sport To a generation of cricket-loving Australian children, Dean Jones was a hero. To Victorians, he was something closer to a sporting martyr but his death at 59 prematurely robs a family of a husband and father, and removes from the Australian sporting landscape a cult figure, writes Russell Jackson.To a generation of cricket-loving Australian children, Jones was a hero. To Victorians, he was something closer to a sporting martyr. The Melburnian devotion to Jones went far beyond reason. His slights at the hands of national selectors were received like blows to the soul. Years after his retirement, loyalists in the MCG outer persisted with their banners: "Bring back Deano".

Both cricketers used their love for the game to pursue commentaring careers.

They continued to keep in touch over the years, with Jones often making fun of Warne via text message.

'He'd message me a lot, wherever I was, wherever he was, about anything and everything. He used to rib me about my golf handicap. He'd call me a bandit,' Warne wrote.

'Professor Deano' also sent Warne statistics on the game and asked for his opinion on 'this or that'.

Warne said his thoughts are with Jones' wife Jane and their two daughters.

Jane - who was married to the man affectionately known as 'Deano' for 34 years - said she was overwhelmed by the scale of response in the wake of his shock death.

'My beautiful husband, the love of my life has lived his life with every bit of energy at his disposal, and he leaves an enormous gap in our lives which can never be filled,' Jane told The Age.

The Dean Jones Cup would add to a legend's legacy

  The Dean Jones Cup would add to a legend's legacy Through cricket seasons I’ve enjoyed the commentary of Jim Maxwell, David Lloyd, Michael Holding and especially Richie Benaud. To that I add the newspaper columns of Dean Jones. They were my favourite part of the Sunday papers. Jones wrote so passionately it was as if he was shouting into your ear in a crowded bar. He critiqued batting, bowling, field placements, coaching, on-field tactics and individual player capability. Jones as a cricket writer was fearless. He expressed views straight from the heart. He got it right nearly every time.

'He leaves us with so many wonderful memories that will last forever. At this challenging time, when our grief is so raw, we have drawn much consolation from the many messages of goodwill and support from so many people around the world.

'Given Dean's special love for the sub-continent, it was especially touching to hear so broadly from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. We are overwhelmed by the scale of the response to the news of his death and we will forever be grateful for that.'

Mrs Jones also paid tribute to Lee, who desperately tried to revive his commentary colleague via CPR and a defibrillator moments before an ambulance was on the scene.

Jane asked the cricketing world to respect the family's privacy at this time.

She said details of Jones' memorial celebration would be released in 'due course'.

Meanwhile, Lee paid respect to his close friend by sharing a touching video from their hotel.

Jones' playful side was on full display as he provided mock commentary of a golf 'tournament' inside a hotel room also featuring Lee and ex-New Zealand international turned commentary colleague Scott Styris.

Never short of a tale: Memories of Dean Jones will live on

  Never short of a tale: Memories of Dean Jones will live on Dean Jones may have left us but there are so many stories to share that he will never be forgotten.Having taken myself down memory lane, I sent Jones a WhatsApp message, for he was in Mumbai, preparing for the remote calling of the Indian Premier League.

'That one is underneath the tree then out of bounds,' Jones can be heard describing an errant shot from Lee.

He then grabs the putter off Lee and takes centre stage.

True to form, Jones shrieked to 'be the ball' before then describing his good mate Styris as his 'golf handicap'.

As the clip ends, Jones can barely contain his delight after winning the closest to the hole challenge by a matter of inches.

It comes as Jones' heartbroken daughter has thanked former Australian bowler Lee for attempting to save the cricket great's life.

He was in the city with Lee as part of Star India's commentary team for the Indian Premier League, which is being played in the UAE because of coronavirus.
