Andrew Symonds attended his former team-mate Shane Warne’s state memorial earlier in March.
Former Australia cricketer Andrew Symonds has died aged 46 after being involved in a car crash.
The all-rounder played 26 Tests, 198 one-day internationals and 14 Twenty 20s for Australia between 1998 and 2009.
A powerful batter, canny bowler and fine fielder, Andrew Symonds was part of two 50-over World Cup wins and Australia’s Ashes victory over England in 2006-07.
Queensland police said early information indicated Symonds’s car “left the roadway and rolled”.
A statement added: “Emergency services attempted to revive the 46-year-old driver and sole occupant, however, he died of his injuries.
“The forensic crash unit is investigating.”
Symonds’s wife Laura told the Brisbane Courier Mail: “We are still in shock – I’m just thinking of the two kids.”
Cricket Australia said it was “shocked and saddened by the news”.
