Australian international cricketer Phil Hughes has died at Sydney’s St. Vincent’s Hospital. The 25-year-old was in critical condition after he was hit on the head by a ball while batting during an important domestic game in the city on Tuesday.
The incident sent shock waves through the cricket world and was a reminder that, despite its genteel reputation, cricket can be a highly dangerous sport.
Hughes was struck on the rear left side of the head below the helmet by a short, fast ball — known in cricketing parlance as a “bouncer” — delivered by New South Wales bowler Sean Abbott.
