Australian cricketers Shane Warren and Andrew Symonds were about to start coaching together in the UK, but “unlucky luck” did not give them the opportunity and they died one after the other in the last two months.

According to the British Daily Mail, Symonds, who died in a car crash outside Townsville on Saturday night, had agreed to join Shane Warren’s coaching staff for England’s limited-overs new competition The Hundred’s franchise London Spirit.

Following Shane Warren’s sudden death in Thailand in early March, Symonds revealed that his former teammate had offered him a job in a London franchise.

Andrew Symonds, 46, told Fox Sports: “I’ve been working with him for the last three years, and he called me recently. Maybe (10 days before Warren’s death) I was at home and ready to go fishing. ‘
“I have good news for you, Roy,” he said. Remember how we talked about coaching for London Spirit? I hired you. ”

“I was looking forward to coaching with number one Shane Warren to see how he coached and of course to learn.”

Warren and Symonds were close to each other on and off the field, and the champion bowler felt that great all-rounders could make coaching their career.
Andrew Symonds added: “He said you want to coach. You seem to understand the game well and explain things to me in a very good way. So would you like to try your luck? ‘
On the eve of Shane Warne’s death, Simonds revealed how much the king of Spin affected his life and how strongly his relations came out of the field after retirement.

Andrew Symonds remembered that “Over the years my friendship with Shane Warne has become stronger and he was a big open-hearted master for me.”

‘I was going through some difficult times. I used to call them and if they didn’t pick up my phone, I would have responded to me. He was a little more effective than peace. If I was working in Melbourne, he would stay with them and just order some food and drink.

“It simply came to our notice then. Unfortunately, I did not have to stay with them.”

The deaths of two of Australia’s greatest cricketers have shaken the world of cricket. Now the world of cricket will have another Australian cricketer in the form of Trevor Bells who will fill the void created in London Spirit this winter.
