It has been announced that Pakistan and New Zealand have dedicated their Twenty20 series trophy to Australian batsman Phillip Hughes.

Hughes, who was buried in his hometown of Macksville today, tragically passed away at the age of 25 when he was struck on the side of the neck by a bouncer from New South Wales pace bowler Sean Abbott.

“Hughes died very young and his tragic death has left everyone shocked,” Pakistan Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi said. “We are thankful to the sponsors who have decided to dedicate the trophy in memory of Hughes as a mark of respect.”
