“Absolute gun player,” Deccan Chargers trends as fans remember Andrew Symonds good old days

Andrew Symons passed away at 46 in a car accident that killed the player on the spot. Multiple attempts were made to rush him to the hospital but the player breathed his last at the scene.


Andrew Symonds‘ 45 balls 100 still remains the most celebrated and record-breaking inning in the history of the IPL. Symonds scored one century and 5 half-centuries while playing in the IPL. His stint with the Deccan Chargers remains an unforgotten tale that the fans still count when the then franchise floats for its phenomenal record in the league. Alongside his exploit in the IPL, his performance in the India v Australia world cup final in 2007 torched his career on a bigger scale. Andrew Symonds finished his career with a tag of the best middle-order batsman and a finisher who projected Deccan Chargers to their maiden-IPL title win in 2009 with Gilchrist leading the side.

Fans however couldn’t hold onto their memories of Symonds with the Deccan Chargers and remember the player’s stint with the side. The legendary batsman had scored 249 runs in the league with his 45-ball 100 remaining specials.
