Phillip Hughes’ Untimely Demise Likely to Postpone India-Australia Series

phiNew Delhi, Friday, November 28 – Phillip Hughes untimely demise on Thursday came like a shock to every cricket fan and player. The young left-handed batsman who was to turn 26 after a couple of days left for the heavenly abode post succumbing to the internal injury in head after accidentally being hit hard on the head by a Sean Abbott bouncer in a Sheffield Shield match on November 25 in Sydney.

The death of talented cricketer Hughes a day ago has now cast uncertainty over the first Test match between Australia and India that was slated to take place on December 4. The 2-day practice match between Virat Kohli-led team Indian and Australia XI, scheduled to start from today, in Adelaide has been cancelled as cricketers mourned losing a wonderful & budding star of Australian cricket when a lot more was to come from him. At a stage where both the teams were eyeing for a close contest prior meeting in the World Cup tournament, unexpected end of the 25-year-old player has shaken everyone.

A big question over safety of the cricketers raises at this point. How safe are the cricketers while batting, fielding and bowling. In spite of wearing a helmet, Hughes’ brain got injured. Due to the internal bleeding, it became next to impossible for him to regain consciousness.  Records of young Phil Hughes, who marked the Test debut five years ago & played 26 Test matches for Australia, accumulating 1,535 runs, along with 826 runs in One-Day International matches, are adequate to tell how bright his future was! Five stunning centuries and 11 half-centuries from him in such a short cricket career silently speak about the natural talent he had to confront the opponents on the field.

As per recent information, there is a least probability of the first Test to take place on the scheduled date. It is likely to be called off or postponed. Whatever happens next, it is for sure that the Aussies would leave no stone turned to win the series and give the real tribute to their favorite buddy.
