PHILLIP Hughes stepped up to the crease at the SCG on Tuesday and was soon he on his way to what promised to be his 27th first-class century. But at 2.23pm the world stopped.

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.

HE is the patriach of cricket in Australia. Now Richie Benaud has lent his evocative narration to Channel 9’s powerful tribute to Phillip Hughes.

Dress Standards - Members Reserve

The minimum standard dress to enter the Members Reserve is neat casual for both men and women.

Males 15 years and over must wear a collared shirt (even if worn under a collared sweater or jacket) at all times in the Reserve.

This continues to be the major reason for male members and guests being denied admission, with several hundred cases occurring during last year's football season, so please inform your guests of this requirement.

Please note that caps, hats, beanies and football jumpers are not to be worn in the Frank Grey Smith Bar.

For Twenty20 Big Bash League matches, while the normal dress regulations will apply to access the Members Reserve, requirements will be relaxed for access to the Members Dining Room, where only Members Reserve standards will be required.
