    The player who *nearly* brought me back to cricket.

    It dominated my childhood (well, the summers).
    I played first grade.
    I haven't watched a single ball outside of the occasional T20 half-innings in 20-years.

    Symonds attitude was so throwback - bat, bowl (and bowl 'whatever' - fast, slow, spin) and pride in his fielding - just reminded me of years past before there were rotation policies, blokes batting for not-outs and different teams for different styles of the game...

    Can't believe it.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    It's super sad.

    I read this article yesterday and recall how much of a shit show the situation was and how badly he and his team mates were treated by CA due to the BCCI.

    Monkeygate’s huge toll on Andrew Symonds

    Andrew Symonds ultimately made peace with a tearful Harbhajan Singh when they shared the Mumbai dressing room during the 2011 edition of the IPL, but the greatest victims of the Monkeygate saga three years before were cricket lovers.

    Spinning into a fog of anger, confusion and drinking as a consequence, Symonds’ international career was shortened by as much as five years, according to the estimates of some teammates, at a time when an Australian XI in transition dearly needed him.
