VVS Laxman Apologizes Fans: Andrew Symonds, a former Australian cricketer, died in a vehicle accident on Sunday. The news stunned the cricket world, and a number of cricketers took to Twitter to express their sorrow.

Fans, however, discovered a flaw in VVS Laxman’s post. Actually, Laxman played with Symonds at the Deccan Chargers and so knew him well; however, he made one error by ending the message with a weeping emoji. ‘Shocking news to wake up to here in India. Rest in peace, my dear friend. Such tragic news’ tweeted someone. He closed his message with the emoji ‘heartbreak,’ followed by the emoji ‘weeping.’

According to police, emergency personnel attempted to resuscitate the driver and lone occupant, but he died as a result of his injuries after the automobile was off the road and rolled. Symonds was not named by authorities, although he was publicly identified by several media sources and former players.

“Former Australian teammate Jason Gillespie tweeted, “Horrible news to wake up to.” “I’m really devastated. ‘We’ll all miss you, pal.’ Another former teammate and broadcaster, Adam Gilchrist, wrote: “This is quite painful,’ remarked Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, who described himself as “devastated.”

“On and off the field, we had a fantastic friendship. He tweeted, “Thoughts and prayers with the family.” Symonds’ death comes only months after other Australian legends Shane Warne and Rod Marsh, who also died of heart attacks.

He is a larger-than-life character. Symonds was well-liked not only for his hard-hitting style of play but also for his laid-back nature. He was widely regarded as one of Australia’s best all-rounders and was a crucial player in the squad that won back-to-back 50-over World Cups in 2003 and 2007.
