SYDNEY - Former all-rounder Andrew Symonds has died in a car crash, multiple local media reports said Sunday, in another tragic blow for Australian cricket. 

The 46-year-old, who played 26 Tests and 198 ODIs, was involved in a single-car accident outside Townsville in Queensland state on Saturday night, cricket.com.au and other media said.

Symonds' fatal crash comes just months after the deaths of fellow Australian greats Shane Warne and Rod Marsh.
