Former Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds died at the age of 46 in a car crash, about 50 kilometers outside Townsville on Saturday night. He is survived by his wife Laura and young children Chloe and Billy.

Symonds was the third former Australian cricketer to tragically passed away in 2022 after champion leg-spinner Shane Warne died from a heart attack in Thailand in March. Former wicketkeeper Rod Marsh also passed away from a heart attack earlier this year.

As soon as the news of Symonds’ demise come out, several cricketers took to Twitter to express their grief and pay tribute to the former Australian all-rounder.

In a statement, Cricket Australia chairman Lachlan Henderson said Australian cricket has lost another of its very best. Andrew was a generational talent who was instrumental in Australia’s success at World Cups and as part of Queensland’s rich cricket history, he said.

Henderson also said Symonds was a cult figure to many who was treasured by his fans and friends.

Reports claimed that Queensland Police are now investigating the crash that had taken place at Hervey Range, about 50km from Townsville. The 46-year-old was the sole passenger in the crash just outside of Townsville in his home state of Queensland, police confirmed.

The Queensland Police’s statement confirmed that emergency services attempted to revive the 46-year-old driver and sole occupant, however, he died of his injuries. Early information indicates, shortly after 11 pm the car was being driven on Hervey Range Road, near Alice River Bridge when it left the roadway and rolled, the police further confirmed.

Symonds was widely considered one of the most skilled all-rounders of Australia. He was hugely popular, not only for his hard-hitting approach to the game but also for his easy-going personality. Apart from playing many match-winning hands with his explosive middle-order batting, he had bowled both off-spin and medium pace,

Symonds was also a top-rate fielder and was a key part of Australia’s back-to-back 50-over World Cups triumphs in 2003 and 2007.
