Tributes pour in from cricket fraternity for Phil Hughes

Australian batsman Phillip Hughes passed away today after succumbing to his injuries sustained during a domestic match when he was hit by a bouncer, Cricket Australia said. He was 25.

Players and members of the cricket fraternity from across the globe poured in tributes as soon as the news came in.

Hughes was fighting for life in St Vincent's Hospital after being struck on the head in a freak accident during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground here yesterday.

The 25-year-old left-hander, who was on the verge of a Test recall, was hit on the lower head by a Sean Abbot bouncer following which he underwent an emergency surgery and was placed in an induced coma in the Intensive Care Unit of the St Vincent's Hospital.
