Due to the tragic death of Australia batsman Phillip Hughes, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have agreed to suspend play for the second day of the third Test in Sharjah.

The 25-year-old, who was playing for South Australia, passed away just two days after being struck on the side of the head by a bouncer from New South Wales pace bowler Sean Abbott.

“The whole team is shocked and saddened,” Pakistan team manager Moin Khan said. “He was here with the Australia limited-overs squad and was very cheerful. He was always ready to talk about cricket.”

It has also been announced that the match will be extended by a day, meaning that tomorrow will be day two.
