Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

THE death of young crick­et­ing star Phillip Hughes will in­evitably cast a shadow over this sum­mer of cricket.

Big Bash pre­sen­ter Adam Gilchrist joined thou­sands on Twit­ter to pay trib­ute to the for­mer state ( NSW and SA), Aus­tralian and Ade­laide Strik­ers player, evok­ing the fa­mous WH Au­den poem, made fa­mous in fi lm Four Wed­dings And A Fu­neral.

On the day of Hughes death, Gilchrist posted: “In the words of another splen­did bug­ger, ‘ Stop all the clocks, cut off the tele­phone …’ #WHAu­den #RIPPhilHughes #allthebest­fam­ily.”

A Ten spokes­woman confi rmed the Big Bash team were plan­ning to hon­our Hughes dur­ing their cov­er­age, which kicks off – ap­pro­pri­ately – at Hughes’ adopted home ground, Ade­laide Oval, in a fi xture be­tween the Strik­ers and Mel­bourne Stars this Thurs­day night.
