Former Australian test cricketer Andrew Symonds has been killed in an auto accident. He was 46. Cricket Australia says Symonds was involved in a single-vehicle accident near Townsville in northeast Australia on Saturday night. Symonds was a big-hitting allrounder who played 26 test matches and scored two centuries for Australia. But he was better known as a limited-overs specialist. He played 198 one-day internationals for Australia and won World Cup titles in 2003 and 2007.
