Phil Hughes passes away after suffering head injury

Sydney, Nov 27: Australia Test opener Phil Hughes passed away today after suffering a severe head injury during a match on Tuesday (November 25).

“We are extremely sad to announce that Phillip Hughes has passed away at the age of 25,” Cricket Australia (CA) wrote on its Twitter page today. He was in St Vincent Hospital in Sydney and had undergone surgery.

Hughes had played 26 Tests, 25 ODIs and 1 T20I for Australia.

Australian Team Doctor Peter Brukner said, “It is my sad duty to inform you that a short time ago Phillip Hughes passed away. He never regained consciousness following his injury on Tuesday. He was not in pain before he passed and was surrounded by his family and close friends.

“As a cricket community we mourn his loss and extend our deepest sympathies to Phillip’s family and friends at this incredibly sad time. Cricket Australia kindly asks that the privacy of the Hughes family, players and staff be respected.”

On Tuesday (November 25), Hughes was struck on the head by a bouncer from Sean Abbott during the Sheffield Shied match between South Australia and New South Wales. He had surgery on the same day and had remained in critical condition.
