Cricket fraternity mourns the tragic demise of Andrew Symonds, died in a car accident

By IANS

NEW DELHI: "Think of your most loyal, fun, loving friend who would do anything for you. That's Roy." These words tweeted by Adam Gilchrist about Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds, who died in a car crash late on Saturday, best expressed the sentiments of the cricketing world over the passing of a well-loved cricketer.

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 others parts of the world, former India batsman VVS Laxman reacted by tweeting: "Shocking news to wake up to here in India. Rest in peace my dear friend. Such tragic news."

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar said: "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."
