The service is open to the general public and will take place from 2.30pm to 4.00pm at Riverway Stadium. It will be preceded by a private funeral.

Simonds died on May 14 at the age of 46 in a car accident near Townsville.

Popular with his teammates, Symonds helped win two World Cups for Australia as an important middleweight batter and universal bowler.

He left the game in 2012 and became a member of the Fox Sports cricket comment team.
