Andrew Symonds' playing future could become clearer in the coming weeks following the arrival of his agent to England. Matt Fearon will meet with county officials to gauge their interest in signing Symonds for next year's Twenty20 Cup and P20 competitions. Symonds is already committed to Deccan Chargers for the next IPL season, and is considering offers from at least one South African Pro20 franchise. The allrounder, who will feature on Australia's 60 Minutes programme this week, could also play for Queensland, despite turning down a central contract from his home state.
