    Thanks to Red Devil for putting together a banner in the memory of one of the men that all of us here dedicate so much time and effort into following. When cricketers do well they are heroes to us and when they dont perform as expected we usually feel their pain because we know they are doing their best.

    As a cricketing community we enjoyed Phil Hughes short time with us and are thankful of the way in which he entertained us on the pitch. At this time our thoughts are with Phil's friends and family. Here's our banner in remembrance of Phil...

    A real tragedy. Can take solace in the fact that he died playing the sport he loved.

    R.I.P Phillip Hughes, a classy cricketer and my condolences to his family & friends! It's a great way to show tribute to him, great work by Mercenary and SwingNSeam who suggested the idea.

    Think it was Saurav.
    Btw gotta give some credit to Mercenary as well. The placement of Phil behind 'RIC' looks better than the original placement.

    Very few people know how it feels to lose someone close, at such a young age and that too so suddenly.

    I just hope his family and fellow cricketers will recover from this trauma.

    Great gesture by the way.

    Death becomes all that more horrifying when you realise that the people involved were younger than you. Phil Hughes was the same age as me yet accomplished so much, he has touched many people in life and now in death where he has united people all across the globe in grief. The world has lost a big talent today and I can only imagine the pain that his loved ones are going through.

    Thoughts go out for Sean Abbot who has had a huge burden placed on him at 22 years of age. He is just a young kid and his world has turned upside down by a tragic accident. I hope he recovers soon from this and makes the most of a promising career. Every single cricket fan is wishing success on Sean.

    Fantastic gesture from Cricistan!

    Always sad to see cricket lose talent to fixing, bad attitude, poor form but in this case death snatched a really good prosepct from cricket :(.

    Sincere condolences to Philly's family and the whole Australian cricket federation from the players to the board.

    Also really hope Sean Abbot well during what must be a difficult time for him :(.

    Nice banner Red Devil

    Such a sad loss for the world, a lovely guy, always smiling and played the game in the right way. A family man who enjoyed spending time with his family on their farm when not travelling and playing cricket. A huge talent who will never be forgotten.

    It's great to see the cricket community come together in such tough circumstances.

    RIP Hughes and thoughts and prayers are with your family, friends and loved ones.

    There's a lot to say but just cant use the right words to express how I am feeling, and to imagine what his family would be going through is truly beyond me. My deepest of condolences to his family and I pray and hope that they have the courage to stay strong and get through this tough phase. Overwhelming support shown by the cricket community as a whole around the world just goes to show that we are just one big family. Losing one of our own hurts. RIP Phil, you will be dearly missed!

    That end of the SCG where Hughes fell for the last time should be named after him. Phil Hughes end.
