If you get a game on tonight then what a great effort! My 5 year old is keenly looking forward to his first visit to the MCG.

If there is rain and the game is cancelled as a result are we able to get a refund? Looking outside at the moment and based on the forecast I find it hard to believe there will be a game. Hopefully there will be and if there is, the seats won't be too wet...

THE immediate reactions were shock and sadness from across the globe as news of Phillip Hughes’ tragic death filtered through on Thursday.

Herald Sun

AS the cricket community wrestles with what to do next after Phillip Hughes’ death, RON REED writes the first Test against India should proceed, with the result mattering less than the symbolism of playing it.

Herald Sun

PHILLIP Hughes’ family and Australian captain Michael Clarke have delivered an emotional goodbye after the batsman tragically died from a head injury today.

Herald Sun

AUSTRALIAN cricketer Phillip Hughes has died after being struck in the head while batting at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He was 25.
