    Sheffield Shield - Victoria v Western Australia

    Nov 25 - Nov 28, 2014

    Sheffield Shield match abandoned

    Update: Wednesday November 26, 2014 at 9.30am

    Cricket Australia advises that the current round of Sheffield Shield has been abandoned.

    Following consultation with the players and the Australian Cricketers’ Association, the Victoria v Western Australia match at the MCG and the Queensland v Tasmania match at Allan Border Field have been abandoned this morning.

    This follows yesterday's abandonment of the New South Wales v South Australia at the SCG match in which South Australian batsman Phillip Hughes was seriously injured.

    Cricket Australia’s Executive General Manager of Team Performance Pat Howard:

    “We’ve spoken to players and the ACA, and given how players across the country are feeling right now, it’s just not the day to be playing cricket and we understand that.

    "We are continuing to offer all players and match officials counselling and support at this difficult time.

    “Phillip Hughes continues to receive the best possible medical care. The thoughts of his teammates and the wider cricket community are with Phillip and his family and friends at this difficult time,” Howard said.

    Under CA’s Playing Conditions, one point will be given to each team in an abandoned match.
