Andrew Symonds was a batting all-rounder who represented Australia in all three formats of cricket.
He was an integral part of two World Cup-winning teams. Symonds batted in the middle order as a right-handed batsman and bowled medium pace and off-spin.
He was also known for his outstanding fielding abilities.
Symonds was forced to leave the team around mid-2008 due to disciplinary issues, notably alcohol.
He was sent home from the 2009 World Twenty20 in June 2009, marking his third suspension, expulsion, or removal from selection in a year.
Many cricket analysts predicted that the Australian administrators would no longer accept Symonds and that he would announce his retirement.
Symonds announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on February 16, 2012, in order to focus on his family.
Symonds’ biological parents were of African-Caribbean origin, while the other was of Scandinavian descent.
When Symonds was three months old, his adoptive parents, Ken and Barbara, went to Australia.
Louise Symonds, one of the adoptive siblings, was a Gladiator. He was born with two siblings who were not adopted.
His father Ken taught at the private fee-paying All Souls St Gabriels School in Charters Towers, northern Queensland, where Andrew grew up.
He was a natural athlete from a young age. “Dad was a cricket fanatic. He used to throw balls to me five or six times a week, before and after school.
We’d also play games with ping-pong balls and Christmas decorations inside the house.”
Much of his junior cricket was played for the Wanderers club in Townsville, with father and son making the 270-kilometer round trip once or twice a week.
His parents were on the staff of All Saints Anglican School in Merrimac when the family moved to the Gold Coast. Symonds attended the institution as a student.
