Cricket Association of Nepal is planning to place a bat belonging to the late Australian cricketer on top of Mount Everest. They have written a letter to Cricket Australia (CA) and they are already working on this initiative.

CA chairman Wally Edwards said, “The Nepalese have asked CA if it would be possible to have one of Hughes’ bats, a piece of his clothing and a CA flag to take to the world’s highest point during the next climbing season in March-April. What a wonderful tribute.”

In a seperate news, Cricket Australia trademarked the phrase “63 not out” to stop people from making money at the expense Phil Hughes, who was on 63 when he was hit by the ball.

A CA spokesman said, “Cricket Australia registered the trademark in conjunction with Phillip’s management purely as a defensive registration to prevent others trying to exploit Phillip’s memory. There was some evidence of that starting to occur which is why we have taken this action.”

There has been some unlicensed Phillip Hughes merchandise being sold online. These include t-shirts, stickers and memorial trophies. With this step, hopefully these profit motives will be stopped.
