Subject: Phil Hughes: Australian batsman dies, aged 25

Written By: Philip Eno on 11/27/14 at 12:11 am

Australia Test batsman Phil Hughes has died, two days after being hit on the head by a ball. Australia team doctor Peter Brukner said he never regained consciousness and died in hospital in Sydney. Hughes, 25, was carried off on a stretcher at the Sydney Cricket Ground after a short-pitched delivery struck his head, missing his helmet. He had CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before being taken to hospital and placed in an induced coma. In a statement, Peter Brukner said: "It is my sad duty to inform you that a short time ago Phillip Hughes passed away. He never regained consciousness following his injury on Tuesday. "He was not in pain before he passed and was surrounded by his family and close friends. "As a cricket community we mourn his loss and extend our deepest sympathies to Phillip's family and friends at this incredibly sad time. "Cricket Australia kindly asks that the privacy of the Hughes family, players and staff be respected."

This is an incredibly sad moment. It is all the talk around the place in Australia.  My thoughts go out to Phil's family, friends and cricket community. 

The 1st test starts here next week and I wonder how this will affect the Aussie bowlers...
