    Phil Hughes: Australian batsman dies

    Australia Test batsman Phil Hughes has died, officials say, two days after being hit on the head by a ball.

    Cricket Australia officials 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.

    A statement from a Cricket Australia spokesman 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."

    As far as I remember this is the first incident of an International Cricketer dying on the field of play by an injury.

    Oh man this is the worst news of the morning. Life is unpredictable we all know about it but when that unpredictability strikes then you realise it.

    Rest in peace Phillip Hughes.

    Very sad news. Shocked with how serious it has become. Never thought I'd see the day someone dies due to cricket but here it is. A massive heartbreak as a cricket fan and human being to see Hughes go. Was a really good competitor

    Also spare a though for Sean Abbot, not long ago he was sharing a dressing room with P Hughes, really hope CA help him with some counselling.

    Wish him good luck, hope he recovers from what must be a nightmare for the guy.

    Stay strong Sean Abbot!
