Just heard the tragic news. #PhilHughes this is the first fatality in the sport I am hearing of after Raman Lamba. A sad day for cricket. Coming as I do from a sport where death is a clear if very remote possibility #rugby seems crazy for someone to lose one's life in cricket. Let us resolve to stand by Sean Abbott too, at this time. It's a sport and he mustn't blame himself for what happened. #RIPPhilHughes
