Former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds died in a car crash Saturday night. The accident occurred just outside of Townsville in his home state of Queensland. Symonds, who was 46, was the only person in the vehicle.
The personalities in the world of cricket and elsewhere have mourned the legend of the sport. An aggressive batsman, he was also pretty handy with the ball. He is the third former Aussie cricketer to pass away this year. Earlier, Shane Warne and Rod Marsh had shuffled off their mortal coil.
Indian cricketing star Virat Kohli wrote on Twitter, “Shocking and saddening to hear of Andrew Symonds passing. May his soul RIP and God give strength to his family in this difficult moment. 🙏🏻.”
Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal, who will next be seen in action thriller Dhaakad, tweeted, “This is too sad, woke up to this tragic news Andrew Symonds, fatal car accident. Prayers and condolences to his family. #RIPAndrewSymonds 💔.”
