    Wow. Thoughts & prayers are with you mate.
    Played cricket with him at Sawtell when he was 15.
    Hope he is ok.

    Hope he is ok too.

    Seems very serious and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Shocking news

    Have heard stories from years ago when 1 of our tail enders was hit in the head and stopped breathing for a minute or 2. May have been Chatfield I think

    Didn't seem that bad a knock, I've seen better badging's then that over the years. Abbot isn't that quick either so it just goes to show that if you get hit in the wrong spot it'll do damage. Gives you a horrible feeling in your stomach watching that stuff. Hope he is all right but the report on the SMH website sound like he is/was in a bad way for a while. Fingers crossed for him.

    Undergoing surgery as we speak.
    I wish they would take some of the images down from social media.
    They are pretty disturbing.

    Hoping you make a full recovery, young man.

    Thoughts and prayers with you right now to pull through, and with your family.

    Terribly sad, let's hope he recovers fully. An immense talent!

    Awful, just awful

    Sounds like the next 48 hours are key. I just hope this turns into one of those great redemption stories (comes back to score a 100 on his recall to the Australian team) rather than a tragedy

    ^^ Be a really good story if that happens for Phil.

    It's his 26th birthday on this Sunday, 30th November and I'm sure his family would love to celebrate that one together.

    My prayers are with you right now.

    Obviously feel for Phill and his family but spare a thought also for the bowler Abbott.

    Just read an article suggesting that this is a hell of a lot worse than we are thinking. Tragic

    Phil Hughes just passed away. Very tragic news. Hope the bowler Abbott gets through this and plays again

    One in a million injury.
    Only ever happened once before in cricket.

    Unbelievable. Is going to be a strange day's cricket on Saturday, I'd say that everyone will have a heavy heart pulling on the whites this weekend.

    No games for us this weekend. The round has been called off as a mark of respect.

    We are still playing. Black armbands and one minutes silence prior to game start across the comp.

    Phil played for our club, so his passing is very close to home. He is the first player from our club to make it to test level.
