The cricket world is in mourning after former Australian star Andrew Symonds died on Saturday night.

He was 46-years-old.

...

His passing comes after the shock deaths of fellow Aussie cricket greats Shane Warne and Rod Marsh earlier this year.

In a statement, Queensland Police said the single-car crash occurred at Hervey Range, as Symonds’ vehicle left the road and rolled. Paramedics tried to save him but were unable to.

Within hours, I'd already heard mention of a cricket shot that batsman will play down the ground, usually off the front foot.

I got lost when I heard it too.  I was still in "too soon" time.

But...

Not surprising... it's what us Aussies do...
