Phillip Hughes tributes to flow at first Test in Adelaide

FORMER Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes (pictured) will be honoured with 63 seconds of applause before the start of the first Test in Adelaide tomorrow.

Playing for South Australia in a Sheffield Shield game against his home state, New South Wales, almost two weeks ago, Hughes was 63 not out when fatally struck by a bouncer from Blues all-rounder Sean Abbott.

The Australian and Indian teams will line-up beside a giant "408" to be painted on the Adelaide Oval surface to signify the cap number Hughes was given when he made his Test debut for Australia. Michael Clarke's side will also wear black armbands and have 408 printed on their shirts.

 

The scoreboard will show a video tribute narrated by commentator Richie Benaud before the start of play.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said he hoped the entire cricket community could come together to join in the pre-match tribute.
