While web surfing I stumbled on to this site. The photos of Hughesy are absolutely awesome. Being from South Wales and following this particular cricketer’s career, never in my life have I seen such gorgeous pictures. How can I really express what I feel? Well, I can’t. Those of us who were close to Hughesy have suffered a great loss.

Cricketer. Australian Test and One-Day International (ODI) cricketer who played domestic cricket for South Australia and Worcestershire. He was a left handed opening batsman who played for two seasons with New South Wales before making his Test debut in 2009 at the age of 20. Hughes scored his first Test century in his second Test match for Australia at the age of 20, opening the batting and hitting 115 in the first innings against South Africa in Durban. This made Hughes Australia's youngest Test centurion since Doug Walters in 1965. In the second innings of the same match, Hughes scored 160 as Australia won the match by 175 runs, becoming the youngest cricketer in history to score centuries in both innings of a Test match. On 11 January 2013, he became the first Australian batsman in the history of ODI cricket to score a century on debut, a feat which he achieved against Sri Lanka in Melbourne. In the first Test of the 2013 Ashes, Hughes shared a world record tenth wicket partnership of 163 runs with debutant Ashton Agar, as Australia were narrowly beaten by England at Trent Bridge. On 25 November 2014, Hughes was knocked unconscious by a bouncer during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, causing vertebral artery dissection that led to a brain hemorrhage. The Australian team doctor, Peter Brukner, noted that only 100 such cases had ever been reported, with "only one case reported as a result of a cricket ball". He was taken to St Vincent's Hospital where he underwent surgery, was placed into an induced coma and was in intensive care in a critical condition. He died two days later on November 27, having failed to regain consciousness.
