The Indian team have released a statement, in which they offer their deepest condolences to Australia batsman Phillip Hughes’ family.

Hughes, 25, tragically passed away earlier today just two days after he was hit on the side of the head by a bouncer from New South Wales pace bowler Sean Abbott.

“The touring Indian team joins the cricketing fraternity across the world in offering condolences to the family of Phillip Hughes, who has departed from our midst,” the statement said. “In this moment of grief, we pray that they are bestowed with divine strength to overcome this unfortunate tragedy.

“As fellow cricketers we cherish the memories of playing along with him and deeply respect his contribution to the game of cricket.”
