New South Wales (NSW) Premier Mike Baird has announced that a State Memorial Service will be held for Australian and state cricketer Phillip Hughes, who passed away on November 27 due to head injury. 

Cricket Australia (CA) informed on the social media website Twitter about the development.


Australia’s shattered top players gathered Friday to comfort each other and consider how to move forward after the death of Phillip Hughes, with no decision on whether next week’s Test with India will go ahead.

The cricket world was plunged into mourning when the talented left-hander died Thursday after being knocked unconscious by a ball in a domestic Sheffield Shield game in Sydney this week, sparking an outpouring of sympathy and support. The entire Test team was summoned to the Sydney Cricket Ground and emotions were raw, AFP reported.
