    Tragic news. But also spare a thought for Sean Abbott, the bowler. Can't imagine how bad he is feeling. Hopefully he can recover and be back playing.

    I saw on news that a similar thing happened a few years ago with an English bowler. He hit a lad in the temple (before helmets) and put him in hospital. He said the only thing that got him through it was being able to speak to the other player after he had come out of hospital. God only knows how Sean Abbott feels as he will never be able to have the same closure.
