Phillip Hughes, 1988–2014 (Australian cricketer)

* Phillip 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.

In March 2009, he became the youngest cricketer in history to score centuries in both the first and second innings of a Test match. On 11 January 2013, he became the first Australian batsman in the history of ODI cricket to score a century on debut.

On 25 November 2014, Hughes was hit in the neck by a bouncer, during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, causing a vertebral artery dissection that led to a subarachnoid haemorrhage. He was taken to St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney, where he underwent surgery, was placed into an induced coma and was in intensive care in a critical condition. He died in the afternoon of 27 November, having never regained consciousness, three days before his 26th birthday.
