Cricket Australia are mourning the death of Andrew Symonds after he died in a car crash overnight, according to reports.

Symonds was 46-years-old. According to reports Symonds was involved in an accident outside Townsville last night.

It's another tragic death for the Australian cricket community following the shock passing of Shane Warne in March. Symonds, a former teammate of Warne, attended his memorial at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Symonds played 26 tests, 198 ODIs and 14 Twenty20 internationals for Australia and was part of two World Cup winning sides.

He made his ODI debut in 1998 and played for more than a decade for his country. He retired from all cricket in 2012.
