Articles about Phillip Hughes
November 27, 2014, will always be regarded as a significant day in cricket history. It was the day when a young Phillip Hughes died after being struck by a bouncer on his head during a match between New South Wales and South Australia at the SCG. A day that brought tears to the eyes of cricket fans all over the world, but at the same time sparked debates regarding the safety aspect of the game. Phillip Hughes made his first-class debut for New South Wales against Tasmania in 2007. His international debut came in a Test match against South Africa in 2009. He did not have the best of starts as he was out for a duck in his debut innings. However, once the nerves were settled, Hughes showed his true colors. In the second Test in Durban, he scored a century in both innings and became the youngest to achieve that feat. His ODI debut came in 2013 against Sri Lanka, four years after his Test debut. With his outside-the-book technique and fearlessness, many touted him to be a potential star for Australia in both formats but it wasn’t meant to be.
