Vale Phil Hughes
The Nunawading Cricket Club Community mourns the loss of Australian cricket great Phil Hughes as he tragically lost his battle after being hit in the head by a bouncer while playing at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday.
Phil’s loss has shocked and saddened the cricketing world. The game has lost both a true gentleman as well as a star. His combination of persistence and resilience was demonstrated throughout his career, qualities that we at Nuna can take on board in both cricket and in general life. Phil was a great role-model for young cricketers and will be missed by many.
From Nunawading CC, we are thinking of Phil’s family and express our most heart-felt condolences.
