If Roy shook your hand you had his word, that's the sort of bloke he was and that's why I always wanted him on my team. An extraordinary player and even better human being. Can't believe he's gone. Thoughts are with his family at this time. pic.twitter.com/7r7FiK1CzK— Ricky Ponting AO (@RickyPonting) May 15, 2022
Andrew Symond's demise is shocking news for all of us to absorb. Not only was he a brilliant all-rounder, but also a live-wire on the field. I have fond memories of the time we spent together in Mumbai Indians.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) May 15, 2022
May his soul rest in peace, condolences to his family & friends. pic.twitter.com/QnUTEZBbsD
Have had the privilege to work with some "big names" in the IPL,as well as a couple of "big characters ". Andrew Symmonds was a fierce competitor and generous teammate. Arguably the greatest all-round fielder ever, on top of his contribution with both bat n ball. #RIPRoy pic.twitter.com/fhDDDIRWD1— Jonty Rhodes (@JontyRhodes8) May 15, 2022
