The cricketing world lost another gem when former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds tragically died in a car crash. He was 46 years old. The all-rounder’s death has been confirmed by Cricket Australia, which cited a police statement containing details of the accident outside Townsville, Queensland. Emergency services reportedly attempted to revive the driver and sole occupant, but he succumbed to his injuries after the car left the road and rolled away. His fatal accident comes just months after the deaths of fellow cricketing giants Shane Warne and Rod Marsh. Symonds was popularly known as one of the greatest all-round players of all time, who played 26 Tests, 198 One-Day Internationals and 14 Twenty20 Internationals between 1998 and 2009. He is among the few players selected on the internationals of a day to score above 5000 runs (5088) and take over 100 wickets (133). With Australia, Symonds had two successive invincible runs in the ODI World Cups – 2003 and 2007. In the inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008, the Australian cricketer became the second most expensive of the auction, with 1.35 million dollars. It was chosen by Deccan Chargers during the auction. In his final IPL season in 2011, Symonds represented Mumbai Indians. As the world bids farewell to one of cricket’s legends, we take a look at some footage that captures Symonds’ cricketing moments.
