Cricket: Australia – Phillip Hughes Has Died


A terrible tragedy. Not only a great player but a great bloke from all accounts. Michael Clark has shown himself to be a class act through all of this – great captain, great friend and a great bloke. Well done Michael Clark in and through a very hard and sad time. And of course my thoughts are with the family and friends of Phil Hughes especially, but also the very distressed guy who bowled the bouncer – not his fault. I feel for him greatly.

This is my game – my sport. I don’t know any of those involved personally, but this has quite distressed me. I think because of my humanness but also because it has always been my sport.

Phillip Hughes – far too young and gone too soon. Very sad day for Australian cricket and cricket in general.
