His old teammate Brett Lee had tried desperately to help him after he collapsed, performing CPR twice and briefly bringing him back to life before his eventual death.

The ceremony was held for Jones last weekend, with only a handful of people allowed to send-off the champion due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Jones was taken for one final lap of the MCG in a hearse carrying his handmade Indian coffin, which was adorned with the Australian flag and a floral 324 arrangement showcasing the batting star’s Test cap number.

The private memorial was attended by 10 family members, including wife Jane and daughters Phoebe and Augusta, who followed the hearse on its final journey.

It is understood a larger public memorial will be staged for Jones in the coming months once restrictions ease in Melbourne, which remains under Stage Four lockdown.

Mrs Jones thanked the community for their support following her husband's sudden death.

'We have been deeply moved by the outpouring of love for Dean over the last week and can’t thank everyone enough for their support and for sharing their memories with us,' she said.

'What better way to honour him than with the music of his friends Elton John and INXS echoing throughout the empty stadium.'

Jones collapsed in the lobby of the 5-star hotel as he walked beside the former fast bowler Brett Lee, who desperately tried to revive him with CPR until paramedics arrived.

'Even though I gave my everything in trying to resuscitate Dean with the use of CPR and a defibrillator, I wish there was somehow or someway to bring him back.'

Hours after Jones' shock death, Lee courageously returned to television for Star India's coverage of the IPL.

Jones would have normally appeared alongside him in the studio for their IPL pre-match segment 'Select Dugout'.

'I think the thing we want to say about Deano is he would have wanted us to be here tonight. It's pretty much the 'Select Deano' we call it. It's Deano's dugout tonight,' Lee said.

'He is an absolute legend. Firstly to his family and friends we send our condolences. It's a real tough day for everyone, not only for his close mates ... and the whole cricketing world in general.

'What Deano would've wanted is for us to come out here in the dugout, get it done, have some fun for the game we all love.'

Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris, another member of the commentary team, choked back tears speaking alongside Lee.

'Who would have thought ... this morning we got up, I had breakfast with Deano. I watched him jog up and down the hallway,' Styris said.

'That was his way of keeping fit because of course we are in the bubble here in Mumbai. Who would have thought merely a couple of hours later he had this heart attack or some sort of cardiac problem. It's incredibly sad.

Just two weeks before Jones' shock death, his daughter Phoebe shared a Father's Day Instagram post for her dad, who was already in India at the time.

The snap shows Jones walking back to the pavilion with bat in his hand after being dismissed during a match in his heyday.

Phoebe, who was a little girl at the time, is seen waiting at the fence for her father.

'Can you spot me? This is me waiting for [dad] to come home and he's only just left!' she wrote.

'Happy Father's Day to the most dedicated and generous man I know. I love you!'

Tragically, Phoebe did not get to see her father again.
