Andrew Symonds’ former Australia team-mates and the rest of the cricketing fraternity expressed their shock of his passing away in a car accident at the age of 46.
Have had the privilege to work with some “big names” in the IPL,as well as a couple of “big characters “. Andrew Symmonds was a fierce competitor and generous teammate. Arguably the greatest all-round fielder ever, on top of his contribution with both bat n ball. #RIPRoy pic.twitter.com/fhDDDIRWD1
