Adam Gilchrist, VVS Laxman, Shoaib Akhtar and other cricketers mourn the demise of Andrew Symonds


Former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds died in a car accident in Hervey Range, 50 kms west of Townsville in far north Queensland late on Saturday. A Queensland police statement says, the 46-years-old was in a single-car crash. Following the news of Symonds death, the cricketing world expressed its grief on social media.

“Think of your most loyal, fun, loving friend who would do anything for you. Thats Roy.” Tweeted Adam Gilchrist

Gilchrist was joined by Symonds`s other ICC World Cup 2003 squad mates — fast bowler Jason Gillespie and opening batter Matthew Hayden — who took to Twitter to express shock and dismay.

“Heartbreaking,” Bevan said in his reaction to the death of the Queenslander. “Aussie cricket losing another hero. Stunned. … Amazing talent.” Gillespie tweeted: “Horrendous news to wake up to. Utterly devastated. We are all gonna miss you mate.”

Former Australian Test cricketer and commentator Damen Fleming said: “This is so devastating. Roy was so much fun to be around.”

In our part of the world, former Test cricketer VVS Laxman reacted by saying: “Shocking news to wake up to here in India. Rest in peace my dear friend. Such tragic news.”

From the other side of the border, Pakistan`s Shoaib Akhtar tweeted: “Devastated to hear about Andrew Symonds passing away in a car crash in Australia. We shared a great relationship on & off the field. Thoughts & prayers with the family.”
