Andrew Symonds was a brilliant cricketer, part of the greatest Australian cricket side since Bradman’s Invincibles. He was a star with bat, ball and in the field, in all forms of the game, and on and off the field.
His death is a great loss to his family and to Australia.
He died today in a single car accident after his car veered off the road and crashed. I don’t know if he was vaccinated – he was a cricket commentator for Fox Sports so it is safe to assume that he got vaccinated to keep his job.
Given that Shane Warne and Rod Marsh have both died this year from likely vaccine related heart attacks, given that multiple sports stars have suffered vaccine related heart ailments this year, and given the circumstances of Symonds’ car crash, it is entirely possible that it was a vaccine related heart attack which resulted in a car crash.
We should at the very least be asking the question.
From Fox Sports:
In another tragic blow to Australian cricket, Andrew Symonds has died in a car accident, aged 46.
Senior cricket journalist Robert Craddock reports that the former all-rounder was killed about 50kms outside Townsville on Saturday night.
A Queensland police statement says Symonds was in a single-car crash about 10.30pm.
Symonds was driving on Hervey Range Road near the Alice River Bridge when his car left the road and rolled, police say.
Paramedics arrived at the scene but couldn’t revive the former Australian fan favourite, who was the only person in the car.
“Horrendous news to wake up to,” tweeted Jason Gillepsie. “Utterly devastated.
“We are all gonna miss you mate.”
Former teammate and Fox Cricket colleague Adam Gilchrist wrote: “This really hurts.”
Symonds is the third Australian cricket legend to suddenly pass away this year following the tragic deaths of Shane Warne and Rod Marsh in March.
Symonds played 26 Tests for Australia, and was an integral part of Australia’s white ball sides that dominated the world between 1999 and 2007.
Rest in Peace Andrew Symonds.
