Queensland Cricket is mourning the sudden passing of Andrew Symonds overnight near Townsville.

The former Queensland and Australian allrounder died in a car accident. He was 46.

His family issued a statement confirming his passing this morning. They have appreciated peoples’ sympathy and best wishes and asked that their privacy be respected during this time.

Queensland Cricket Chair Chris Simpson, who played alongside Symonds for the Bulls, said the cricket community was again mourning the sudden loss of one of the game’s most striking characters.

“On behalf of Queensland Cricket, we express our deepest sympathies to his family and will do whatever we can to assist them,’’ he said.

“It is a shattering loss to those nearest to him, and his wide circle of friends which extend to all corners of the cricketing world.”

“His untimely passing will also resonate deeply with the many fans who thrilled to his efforts with bat, ball and in the field. He stood out for his skill, courage and determination, and the fans who saw him at his best will never forget his impact on a game.”

“We are all hurting and will miss him greatly. His former teammates will remember his loyalty to the playing group and recall the fun times with great fondness, and sorrow that he is gone.”

“He loved Queensland and its outdoor lifestyle and valued and respected the opportunities he had as a youngster growing up in North Queensland that enabled him to go onto represent his state and country.”
