“I can’t believe it completely. Another tragic day of cricket. Bad things happen in three,” he said.

Taylor added: In an era when professionalism is really an abandoned word that we probably use too often. Simo was an older man.

“He wanted to go out and have fun and play the games he remembered when he was a kid.

“Sometimes he was in trouble because he didn’t go to training or drank too much beer in his life, but that’s the way he lived his life and the way he wanted to play cricket.”

Symonds is the third Australian cricket legend who died suddenly this year following the tragic death of Shane Warne and Rod Marsh in March.

Symonds conducted 26 tests in Australia and was an integral part of Australia’s white ballside that dominated the world between 1999 and 2007.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this catastrophic sad time.”

“We’re still shocked. I’m just thinking about my two kids,” Laura said. Courier-mail..

“He was a very big person, and many of him are among his children.”
