Former Australia cricketer, Andrew Symonds dies aged 46 in car crash

Former Australia cricketer Andrew Symonds has died aged 46 after being involved in a car crash.

The all-rounder played 26 Tests, 198 one-day internationals, and 14 Twenty20s for Australia between 1998 and 2009.

A powerful batter, canny bowler, and fine fielder, Symonds was part of two 50-over World Cup wins and Australia’s Ashes victory over England in 2006-07.

Queensland police said early information indicated Symonds’ car “left the roadway and rolled”.

A statement added: “Emergency services attempted to revive the 46-year-old driver and sole occupant, however, he died of his injuries.

“The forensic crash unit is investigating.”

Symonds’ wife Laura told the Brisbane Courier Mail: “We are still in shock – I’m just thinking of the two kids.”

Cricket Australia said it was “shocked and saddened by the news”.
