  • A shocked Australia is mourning the death of Phillip Hughes, the 25-year-old Test batsman who was hit at the base of the skull by a delivery and died two days later in hospital.

    Michael Slater, the former Australian batsman, said the entire country was weeping and the incident had “changed cricket forever.”

    Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said no decision had been taken on whether the first Test against India scheduled for next week in Brisbane will be played.
