Sean Abbott respected by broadcasters Channel Nine
Sean Abbott, with his girlfriend Brier Neil at Phil Hughes Funeral Service

In an extremely respectful move, Channel Nine opted against showing visuals of Sean Abbott during Phil Hughes funeral service today.

Sydney Morning Herald reported  that Channel Nine deliberately kept the cameras away from Abbott, who already has been going through a trauma ever since Hughes’ death.

Photographers clicked pictures of Abbott, as the 22-year old New South Wales all-rounder walked down the street alongside his parents towards the school hall, where the funeral was held.

His mother, Georgina, and father, Nathan, have firmly stood behind their son, whose bouncer became the reason for Hughes’ death. The entire cricket community has shown support to the youngster and it is believed that Abbott is recovering well from the tragedy. He has also resumed his cricket practice since Tuesday.
