Former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds has died aged 46 after being involved in a car crash, BBC reported.

The 46-year-old, who played 26 Tests and 198 one-day internationals, was involved in a single-car accident outside Townsville in Queensland state on Saturday night.

Police said emergency services attempted to revive the driver and sole occupant, but he died from his injuries after the car left the road and rolled.

A powerful batter, canny bowler and fine fielder, Symonds was part of two 50-over World Cup wins and Australia’s Ashes victory over England in 2006-07.
