“Andrew was a generational talent who was instrumental in Australia’s success at World Cups and as part of Queensland’s rich cricket history. He was a cult figure to many who was treasured by his fans and friends,” he added.

Symonds died just after the months of other fellow Australian legends Shane Warne and Rod Marsh.

“Unfortunately I’ve been here too often this year under these circumstances. I actually can’t quite believe it, to be honest,” former Australia captain Mark Taylor told Channel Nine.

Symonds was hugely popular around the world for his game as well as easy-going personality. He was also one of the most skilled all-rounders in the Australian Cricket team. His bowling style was off-spin and medium spin along with being a destructive middle-order batter.

Domestically, he played for Queensland for 17 seasons, while appearing for Gloucestershire, Kent, Lancashire and Surrey in the English County Championship and for Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
