THE cream has risen to the top midway through the third round of the Australian Open in Sydney.

A DEEPLY emotional Michael Clarke broke down as he delivered a touching but agonising tribute to his friend and former teammate Phillip Hughes.

CRICKET Australia has promised a review into player safety in light of the Hughes’ tragedy, with particular emphasis on helmet regulations.

AS tough as the first steps will be, I hope Sean Abbott’s NSW teammates can coax him back into the practice nets at some stage, writes Allan Border.

CRICKET Australia have handled the awful task that befell them after Phillip Hughes’ tragic accident with exemplary calm and dignity.
