England-born Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds died in a car accident on Saturday, May 14th, and the cricket world is yet to swallow the shocking news. The cricketer's car crashed about 50 km outside Townville, and he could not be revived, dying on the spot.
Times have been hard on Australian cricket as it has lost three cricketing gems within a year. Shane Warne indeed was the greatest loss, who died in March, a few days after his friend, Rod Marsh, who was also the former Australian cricketer, passed away.
Apart from the cricketing world mourning over Andrew's loss, his family is yet to come out of the sudden trauma. His sister Louise Symonds penned out that she wishes she had one more day with Symonds to call him.
Her note reads,
Gone far too soon. Rest in Peace Andrew. I wish we had one more day, one more phone call. My heart is broken, I will always love you brother”
Symonds, who was known as Roy among the cricket fraternity, represented Australia in 26 Tests, 198 ODIs, and 14 T20Is. He has gathered 6887 international runs, and also made his place via his appealing and energetic fielding. He made an impact due to his bullet-styled throws inside the circle.
