Bouncer tragedy: Phil Hughes dies from head injury

Australia and the rest of the cricketing world was in shock as Phil Hughes (25) died in a Sydney hospital from a "catastrophic" injury to his head, two days after being struck by a bouncer from Sean Abbott during a domestic first-class match at the SCG.

Australia team doctor Peter Brukner said he passed away in hospital, never regaining consciousness.

The left-handed opening batsman, who played 26 Tests, 25 one-day internationals and a Twenty20 international for his country, made his international debut at the age of 20 against South Africa in 2009.
