The death of Australian batsman Phil Hughes two days after he was hit on the head by a ball has shocked fans at home. He was wearing a helmet but the ball slipped through a tiny gap between it and his shoulder. (SOUNDBITE)(English) WARWICK LEE, BANKER, SAYING: "It's the first time in my living memory that was can remember something like this happening. I think the only thing that should change is the design of the helmet." (SOUNDBITE)(English) SHAUN KAVANAGH, TRAVEL AGENT, SAYING: "If you look at rugby league they've stopped the spear tackle, they've stopped the above-the-horizontal so I think, given where we are with sports, it might be the thing to do." Cricket Australia says it's launching an immediate review of player safety following the 25-year-old's death (SOUNDBITE)(English) JAMES SUTHERLAND, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF CRICKET AUSTRALIA, SAYING: "Statistics say it's clearly a freak incident but one freak incident is one freak incident too many so that of course puts us in a position of looking into that." At Sydney cricket ground flags flew at half mast in a mark of respect to Hughes. The Indian national squad, on a tour of Australia, cancelled a two-day practice match due to start on Friday. Pakistan and New Zealand called off the second day of their test match in Dubai. Local cricket teams in India were among those observing a moment's silence.
