New Delhi: Australian opener Phil Hughes, was hit on his head by a bouncer from Sean Abbott on Tuesday in a Sheffield Shield game played between New South Wales and Southern Australia.
The left-hander immediately collapsed on the ground after being hit.
It wasn’t a pleasant sight at the Sydney Cricket Ground and the play was suspended temporarily due to the incident.
An ambulance arrived at the ground and Hughes was rushed to the hospital on a stretcher.
Hughes was in contention to play the first Test against India at Brisbane with skipper Michael Clarke still recovering from a hamstring injury.
