Like most cricket lovers, we were deeply saddened to hear about about Phillip Hughes tragically passing away on the 27th of November, 2014. We wanted to express our respect for this incredibly talented sportsman by posting a video tribute. This video from Cricket Australia shows some of Phillip Hughes greatest moments as a cricketer.
Hughes was born November 30, 1988 in Macksville, NSW and by the age of twenty, was selected to play for his country in the baggy green. His first test was against South Africa in 2009 and he had big shoes to fill. Replacing the retiring Matthew Hayden, Hughes more than held his own by making 350 runs in his first four innings. His second test would be one of his most memorable tests when he scored 115 and 160 respectively, making him the youngest player to get centuries in both innings of international cricket.
Phil Hughes played a total of 26 tests Australia, with 3 centuries and 7 half centuries to his name. He will always be remembered by the wider cricket community and shall remain forever 63* not out.
