Cricketer Phillip Hughes has died
The cricket world has been left shattered by the death of Australian batsman, Phillip Hughes.
The 25-year-old suffered devastating head injuries when he was struck while batting at the Sydney Cricket Ground yesterday.
His family has made the heart breaking decision to switch off his life support.
Hughes had been in a critical condition in an induced coma after being struck by a ball during South Australia’s Sheffield Shield match with NSW at the SCG on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old on Tuesday underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, and doctors said they expected to know the outcome of the procedure by Thursday.
Hughes’ life-threatening injuries sent shock waves through the cricketing world, with messages of support pouring in from current and former Australian cricketers as well as players from around the world.
Australian captain Michael Clarke and vice-captain Brad Haddin were among the supporters to visit Hughes in hospital on Wednesday, joining Hughes’ family at the former Test opener’s bedside.

Here they go, the Aussie killer cricketers getting ready for the World cup. They are World class at sledging too.
They bowl rocketing short balls that intimidate the batsmen beyond belief.
And they are practising for the World cup in their home ground.
Watch out guys, you will join Phil Hughes if you fail to duck for those killer short balls.
If I were a batsmen, I will piss in my pants when facing Aussie killer bowlers.
ICC should remove Australia from the World cup tournament if sanity is to prevail and the World cup is to be played on a level playing field.
Anton (blogger 1) is quite correct in his views.
If Australia is a truly sporting nation as they claim, Australia should voluntarily withdraw from the World Cup and shut down the domestic season in memory of the late Phil Hughes.
In the year long shut down, all Australian cricketers should be counselled on the spirit of competition. The killer looks every Australian bowler throws at the batsman at the other end, after every ball, is a landmark in Australian cricket.
