Players from the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Titans (GT) wore black armbands during their match on Sunday, May 15 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The cricketers took the step to pay tribute to former Australia all-rounder Andrew Symonds, who passed away earlier today. “Police are investigating a single-vehicle crash in Hervey Range, around 50 kilometers from Townsville that’s taken the life of a 46-year-old man last night,” Queensland police were quoted as saying in a statement. Symonds was a key member of the Aussies team across formats for more than a decade. He also plied his trade for the now-defunct Deccan Chargers in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Symonds was a brute striker of the cricket ball and was more than handy with his medium pace bowling.
