It’s hard to digest that a talent like Phillip Hughes is not between us anymore. When it was almost made clear that Australian captain Michael Clarke would miss the Border-Gavaksar Trophy starting December 4th and Philip Hughes would take his place in the squad, it got sure that this would be his breakthrough series. And now, when we are witnessing that he is no more, it’s very hard to believe the same fact. 

Australia Prime Minister Tony Abbott said:

“His death is a very sad day for cricket and a heartbreaking day for his family.

“For a young life to be cut short playing our national game seems a shocking aberration. He was loved, admired and respected by his teammates and by legions of cricket fans.

“He was a young man living out his dreams.”
