No jackets and no ties for Symonds’ memorial in Townsville

Update : 25 May 2022, 09:57

Former Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds passed away at the age of 46 on May 14 when his car left the road and rolled in Hervey Range just outside of Townsville in the Australian state of Queensland. His public memorial will take place on Friday, 27 May 2022 in Townsville.

A public event will take place where the former cricketers and friends will pay their tribute to Andrew Symonds, a no-jacket, no-tie memorial service.

Symonds was considered one of the most decorated all-rounders of the game. He won two ICC World Cups with Australia in 2003 and 2007.

A host of former teammates and Australian Test stars on Friday will speak at a public memorial service for all-rounder Andrew Symonds. Test wicket-keepers Ian Healy and Adam Gilchrist, former Australia coach Darren Lehmann, ex-Queensland captain Jimmy Maher and long-time friend Matthew Mott will be among those to speak at the memorial, with poet and friend Rupert McCall to also deliver a poem.

The Riverview Stadium event will also be live-streamed at the Gabba, Symonds' old home ground with Queensland.
