The Indian cricket team is on the tour to West Indies and when they are not playing matches, the players can be seen chilling on the beaches to beat the heat. The weather conditions in Jamaica where the second test match between India and West Indies is being played are quite hot as well as humid. While the players are making sure of keeping themselves well-hydrated, the former West Indian legendary cricketer Sir Vivian Richards was not able to bear the heat.
Sir Vivian Richards suffered from dehydration and was taken to hospital for check-up. The incident took place just before the second test match started, the legendary West Indian former cricketer was doing a pre-match show when he complained of uneasiness. Immediately, a stretcher was brought but Richards chose to walk off. He was taken to hospital and it was found that he suffered from dehydration. Some time later, he returned and did commentary as well.
This incident took former Australian cricketer Dean Jones into his cricketing days and he decided to let everyone know that he also suffered from dehydration during the Chennai test in 1986-87.
In this test match, Dean was on the field for more than 500 minutes and he scored a superb double century. No result came of the match as it was the second tied test match in the history of the world test cricket. Dean was admitted into hospital as he was given saline drip so that he could recover quickly.
Dean Jones took to Twitter to share a photo from the same test match in which he is seen wrapped with a towel.
He wrote, “I heard my dear mate and the greatest of all time @ivivianrichards fell ill in Jamaica due to dehydration. Trust you are well my dear mate.. have I told you when I was dehydrated in Madras……???”

The former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra who has also become a commentator chose to troll Dean Jones while wishing Sir Vivian Richards a recovery. Aakash also tagged Scott Styris asking him whether he has heard about it.
He tweeted, “Wishing Sir Viv good health. And Deano, why haven’t you shared that story with us yet??? @scottbstyris, you wouldn’t have heard that either… right??”

Scott also didn’t miss the chance to have fun and soon he responded with, “Judging by that photo Aakash… not sure @ProfDeano realised that to recover from dehydration you’ve got drink everything not eat everything #rich.”
