THE immediate reactions were shock and sadness from across the globe as news of Phillip Hughes’ tragic death filtered through on Thursday.

AS the cricket community wrestles with what to do next after Phillip Hughes’ death, RON REED writes the first Test against India should proceed, with the result mattering less than the symbolism of playing it.

PHILLIP Hughes’ family and Australian captain Michael Clarke have delivered an emotional goodbye after the batsman tragically died from a head injury today.

AUSTRALIAN cricketer Phillip Hughes has died after being struck in the head while batting at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He was 25.

IT is doubtful whether any incident has caused more widespread grief in Australian cricket than the loss of one of the game’s most likeable characters.
