Currently, Hughes is in intensive care and his recovery is being monitored with constant updates, reports itv news.

Earlier ABC had tweeted earlier, “Cricket NSW could not confirm if Phil Hughes was alive when he left” for hospital, and were immediately bombarded with messages criticising their lack of sensitivity.” Owing to this a user replied by tweeting back, “”What? really? #ThinkPositive – this kind of comment is NO help.”
