Phillip Joel Hughes (30 November 1988 – 27 November 2014)  known as phil hughes was an Australian Test and One-Day International (ODI) cricketer who played domestic cricket for South Australia and Worcestershire. He was a left-handed opening batsman who played for two seasons with New South Wales before making his Test debut in 2009 at the age of twenty.


Hughes' rise in cricket has been meteoric. His excellence earned him an A-grade at the Macksville Cricket Club aged 12, before going on to represent Australia in the 2007 Under-19 World Cup. Following the age cricket World Cup, the youngster enjoyed an outstanding first-class season with New South Wales scoring 559 runs at an average of 62.11. His heavy scoring continued the following season before he was brought in as Hayden's replacement for the 2009 away tour to South Africa, where he made his Test debut.


On 25th November, playing for South Australia against New South Wales in a Sheffield Shield match, Hughes missed a Sean Abbot bouncer and was hit on the lower back of the neck as he missed a pull shot. Although he was hospitalized immediately, the doctors reported that he never regained consciousness despite surgery and remained in an induced coma. A couple of days later, Cricket Australia issued a statement informing the untimely passing of Phil Hughes at the age of 25.
