Practice match between India and Australia has been cancelled

Second practice match between India and Australia which was scheduled on Friday and Saturday was abandoned following the death of Phil Hughes death today. Cricket Australia will decide over the coming days how to approach the first test in Brisbane which starts on Thursday next week. Four players in Australia's test squad were on the field when Hughes was struck by fatal blow during the Sheffield Shield game between New South Wales and South Australia on Tuesday. Cricket Australia has also cancelled the Sheffield Shield round matches. We thought that far ahead and we really don't think that it is right time to play first test", said cricket Australia CEO Sutherland. "The whole of Australian cricket is grieving now and we want to provide the Hughes family all the support we can give. The India team will practice nets on Friday but not on the ground as a mark of respect to Hughes. After Hughes died the India squad released a statement offering its condolences to Hughes.
