THE cricket world was in mourning yesterday following the death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, who died in a Sydney hospital, two days after being hit in the head by a ball.

A game that is synonymous with the values of fair play and sportsmanship was left heartbroken at the loss of one of its favorite sons, a kid from a banana plantation who dared to dream big.

That he died surrounded by his family and friends after being injured playing the game he loved Boston Celtics T-Shirts , provided little solace to the millions who follow cricket.

“It’s an understatement to say we’re completely devastated,” Cricket Australia boss James Sutherland told reporters.

“The word tragedy gets used too often in sport, but this freak accident is a real life tragedy.”

Australia’s pain was shared by the cricketing world. Cricket, perhaps more than most other sports, is played by a tight-knit community.

Only a handful of countries play the game professionally and opposing players spend months together Custom Boston Celtics Jersey , often dining and drinking together after matches.

Rarely has cricket been more united than now, the game’s saddest day.

Overwhelmed by emotion, Australia’s players were in tears as they filed out of St Vincent’s hospital after bidding farewell to their fallen team mate.

The Indian team, currently on tour in Australia, cancelled its two-day practice match that was due to start today. In Dubai Cheap Boston Celtics Jerseys , Pakistan and New Zealand aborted the second day of their test match.

At Lord’s, the traditional home of cricket, flags were flown at half mast, a tribute that was replicated at stadiums around the world.

“For a young life to be cut short playing our national game seems a shocking aberration,” Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said.

The news of Hughes’ death came like a bolt from the blue. The 25-year-old had been in an induced come for two days after being struck by a bouncer from Sean Abbott at the Sydney Cricket Ground in a domestic encounter.

He had needed CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before undergoing emergency surgery to reduce the pressure on his brain.

The ball hit him on the side of his neck Walter Brown Celtics Jersey , compressing his vertebral artery and causing it to split, forcing blood into the brain area. Doctors removed parts of his skull during the operation but the damage was too severe and he never regained consciousness.

“This was a freakish accident because it was an injury to the neck that caused hemorrhage in the brain,” Cricket Australia doctor Peter Brukner said. “The condition is incredibly rare.”

His death will undoubtedly raise questions about safety standards in the game. Hughes was wearing a helmet but the ball slipped through a tiny gap between his shoulder and the base of his protective hard hat.

The outpouring of grief that followed the news of the player’s death was elevated in part by his enormous popularity.

Raised on a farm, Hughes was a throwback to cricket’s golden era, self-taught through hours of practice in his backyard. He made his first-class debut at 18 and was picked for the Australian team at just 20 Tyler Zeller Celtics Jersey , scoring twin centuries in his second test, against South Africa.

Despite his unconventional technique, he scored a mountain runs and was compared to Don Bradman, cricket’s greatest ever batsman. But his vulnerability to short-pitched bowling stalled his career, though not his popularity.

UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 6 (Xinhua) -- The special representative of the UN secretary-general for Libya, Martin Kobler, on Thursday called for a humanitarian pause in Benghazi's Ganfouda neighborhood, a UN spokesman told reporters here.

"Mr. Kobler said he is deeply disturbed by reports that civilians in that neighborhood continue to be caught in cross-fire and suffer from shortages of food, water and medicines," the deputy UN spokesman, Farhan Haq, said at a daily news briefing here.

"The humanitarian pause would make it possible to reach those in need and create a safe passage to allow civilians who wish to leave to do so in a safe and dignified manner," he said, adding that Kobler stressed that the protection of civilians is the No. 1 priority and that the UN Mission (UNSMIL) is ready to support the evacuation.

Meanwhile, the UN envoy also stressed that the use of civilians as human shields and the carrying out of indiscriminate attacks are prohibited by international humanitarian law, Haq said. "Such violations would constitute war crimes and perpetrators would be held accountable."
