India stand-in captain Virat Kohli will attend the funeral of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, which will be held in his hometown of Macksville at 2pm on Wednesday.

Kohli will be accompanied by team director Ravi Shastri, head coach Duncan Fletcher and team manager Arshad Ayub.

Hughes tragically passed away at the age of 25 when he was hit on the side of the neck by a bouncer from New South Wales pace bowler Sean Abbott.

As a result of the tragedy, the first Test between Australia and India, which was scheduled to get underway on Thursday in Brisbane, has been postponed.
