Pemain Kriket Australia Meninggal Dunia Selepas Terkena Lantunan Bola. Takziah
Hughes cedera di kepala selepas terkena lantunan bola ketika suatu perlawanan kriket selasa lalu.
“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.”
Ketika itu, Hughes sedia untuk menerima balingan dari pembaling New South Wales, Sean Abbott. Malangnya Hughes gagal memukul bola tersebut dan terkena kepala beliau.
Hughes memulakan kariernya sebagai pemain kriket pada tahun 2009.
