The scorecard from that game has now been officially amended by the ACB to show Hughes as 63 not out rather than retired hurt.

"It might seem like a little thing, but it's an important distinction," said CA chief James Sutherland. "Phillip will forever remain 63 not out."

Agreed. I had assumed that he would have counted as 63 not out as the game had been abandoned.

A moving service for Phillip Hughes. His brother and sister spoke very well and from the heart. Michael Clarke also did him proud. He talked a lot about the spirit of cricket. This will be a watershed moment for the game we love, I think. If one good thing can come out of this tragedy then it will be that everyone starts playing the game in a nicer way with less of the macho ********.

I was awake during the night and listened to the whole funeral service on the radio. Clarke: " We must dig in and get through to tea. And we must play on. So rest in peace my little brother. I'll see you out in the middle" - weeping buckets into my pillow.

Agreed I cried into my breakfast and am crying again.

My mam comes out of hospital today. She had a fall and bumped her head. But she is 89. A tragedy like this leaves us all shocked. Now we move on. We do not change the game we love. We support Sean Abbott as we would a boxer who has downed his opponent. We make people aware that it is a dangerous sport. I don't agree with you SVG. Sport without risk is meaningless.

Have to agree Charlie. "Nice" sport is very seldom fun or interesting sport, both to watch and to play. Because you have to really want to win and desire it, in order to play to your peak. And when you are pushing those boundaries, things will always spill over. It is just human nature and isn't going to change.

When I think of "friendly" sport, I've never forgotten a bit in an old Grange Hill from decades back, where they tried to bring in "non competitive sport". I just remember two teams playing footy passing the ball around from opponent to opponent...

"you have the ball"
"no you have the ball"
"no really I insist"
"honestly please, here, take it"
"thanks, but here, have it back".....

Exactly, we go out and have and have a drink and a curry after the guys have been fizzing a chunk of leather past your nose all afternoon. I used to sledge the short leg fielders. "Are you sure you really want to stand that close?" And often you'd get a half tracker at some point and welly it and for that fraction of a second you think ....I never wore a helmet and I've top-edged the shot before. 6 stitches in my ear one time. All sports injuries are self-inflicted.

I was not saying it should not be competitive. The nasty edge should go. It turned into pointless macho crap. Play hard but play fair.

They had nothing to do with each other though. It became nasty off the field. I want what you say

Worth mentioning the way the Indian squad have handled this also. It was nice to see Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri (among others) walking alongside Gilly, quietly paying their respects to Phillip Hughes.

Although extenuating circumstances and disruption unavoidable, the Indian squad have also had their preparation for the series disrupted, but have been understanding and supportive. Kudos.

Never thought someone could die in a healthy game like cricket. Even when today I think of it and i cant believe this tragedy.

Im not so sure mate, i dont think sledgings unfair, its all part of mentally white anting the opposition, targeting both the weak and strong.
crickets best played with aggression and intimidation imo, theres no way us Aussies will be changing anything, i dont think Phils passing will have any long term effects on the way the games played, and the 'macho' stuff your referring to what ever that is had nothing to do with Phils death.
Phil was a handy sledger himself, cricket would be pretty boring without intimidation, aggression, sledging, etc, and the drama it creates, and it all makes for better series imo.
cheers

Well, each to his own, obviously, but I don't think this is true at all. In fact I love cricket without any of those things, and I find them unbelievably tedious and infantile. Cricket can provide enough dramas of its own, on its own terms, without having to have imported into it the most dismal aspects of the rest of the world.

That's not quite what Michael Clarke suggested at the funeral though, is it?

Well stated. I agree completely with this.
