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 has died from head injuries suffered on Tuesday when he was hit in the head by a bouncer at the SCG. He was days from his 26th birthday.

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.

Reciprocal Clubs

Lord'sThe MCC has entered into formal arrangements for its Full members to have reciprocal rights with a number of sporting clubs and stadiums in Melbourne, interstate and overseas.

Due to the fact that a large number of local members may be visiting these venues at any time, and because members' accommodation is very limited at all of them, MCC membership carries varying rights at these venues.

In general, the Australian grounds admit MCC Full members (at a charge) to interstate cricket, AFL or local competition football where applicable.  These clubs/stadiums also have rights to use the MCC member facilities at the MCG.

It is highly recommended that MCC members contact the appropriate venue prior to your arrival to check what privileges are available for the matches on offer.
