26 years old today. You have to feel for his parents.
What a sad week it's been and will be. Funeral on Wednesday will stop the nation

Funeral tomorrow is going to be very sad. I still can't believe he died. Spare a thought too for the umpire who died last week after getting hit in the head.

THOUSANDS of people lined the streets of Macksville to say their final goodbyes to Phillip Hughes as his funeral procession made its way through the streets of the batsman’s home town.

Cricketers past and present formed a guard of honour as Hughes’ father, brother and teammates Michael Clarke, Aaron Finch and Tom Cooper carried the casket out of school’s auditorium.

As the procession made its way through the streets of Macksville, residents walked shoulder to shoulder with sports stars, the prime minister and celebrities.

Kohli hit in the helmet by first ball bouncer from Mitchell Johnson today. All the Aussies rushed up to make sure he was OK and Johnson was visibly upset by it.

FFS. All you have to do is put a white line across the pitch about 3/4 the way down and anything short of that is a two run no ball. Nothing in the rules to say fast bowlers can't bowl bouncers at tailenders at the moment which is definitely not cricket. What is a bowler trying to do with a bouncer? Get it close enough to a batsman's head without hitting it? Get a grip cricket authorities. Bowlers are getting faster and more dangerous. What will it take from the game? More spinners which is more interesting and speeds up the over rate.

Why was Johnson upset. Where was he aiming when bouncing the ball?

Bouncers always been a part of cricket...FFS we used to play on shit pitches where fast bowlers would get the ball head height from a length :lol: :lol:

No over reaction required - get on with the game

The family of Australia cricketer Phillip Hughes walked out of an inquest into his death.

I guess players are afraid to been chased in a civil case or something.
