Former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds passed away in Car Accident on Sunday in Queensland. He was 46 years old.
Symonds played on Australia’s victorious World Cup teams in 2003 and 2007 and competed in 198 one-day internationals as well as 26 tests from 2004 to 2008.
Authorities said that the accident occurred in Hervey Range, 50km south of Townsville. The car accident that Symonds was driving left the road and rolled, as stated by a police report.
“Australian cricket has lost another of its very best,” said Cricket Australia chairman Lachlan Henderson in a statement.
A deadly trip occurred just months after the deaths of fellow Australian Shane Warne and Rod Marsh, who all died in heart complications.
The large-hitting Symonds was well known not only for his formidable approach to the game but additionally for his easygoing personality.
Famed for his swashbuckling batting exhibitions, he was a splendid all-rounder who bowled off-spin and medium pace equally well.
“Everyone had him earmarked as a white ball player,” former team mate Mark Taylor said. He wanted to prove to the world he could play test cricket and he did that way.
