As a nation, we can all learn a thing or two about cleanliness, responsible behaviour and environmental consciousness from Karachi Kings Coach Dean Jones. 

In a video that has been shared widely on social media, the Aussie sportsman could be seen cleaning up after the Friday match between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi match. 

After everybody else had departed, Jones hung back to clean up the litter in his team's dugout post the match. 

In the video, Jones, who is himself a former Australian cricketer, can be seen picking up water bottles and packets of crisps and depositing them in a nearby bin. The video also shows other crew members from the team helping Jones.

The act was instantly celebrated around the country as a reminder of what good behaviour should be for fans watching the match. 

Fans took to Twitter in droves to express their gratitude to Jones and thank him for setting a great example. 

Many believe it should set an example for fans, who should follow in his footsteps and clean up after themselves before they leave the stadium. 

Here's how social media reacted to Jones.

This is not the first time cleanliness and environmental consciousness has made a mark in the sporting world. 

Earlier, during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Japanese fans were hailed globally after they were seen cleaning up the stadium after the match between Japan and Colombia.
