PHIL Hughes is in a critical condition after suffering a vicious blow to the head that saw him hospitalised and play abandoned at the SCG.

    ZLATAN Ibrahimovic scores his first goal in three months for PSG on a record breaking morning of Champions League action.

    SEAN Abbott and fellow grief-stricken NSW players have gathered at their Moore Park office on Wednesday morning to be counselled on the Phillip Hughes incident.

    CRICKET Australia has decided to abandon the whole round of Sheffield Shield matches, Pat Howard saying “it’s just not the day to be playing cricket”.

    NEWS of Phillip Hughes’ fight for life has been relayed around the world - from New York to Kathmandu - while Australia's rivals are united in support.
