Australian batsman Phillip Hughes is gone at 25 after being struck in the head by a bouncer on Tuesday.
Hughes has been on life support in a Sydney hospital since the accident and never regained consciousness.
Cricket Australia’s team doctor, Peter Brunker, said he was surrounded by friends and family this afternoon when he passed away.
The entire round of Sheffield Shield matches has been called off after the accident.
The left-handed opening batsman launched into the international cricket in 2009 with a stellar performance against South Africa.
In his second test, Hughes became the youngest batsman in history to score centuries in each innings of a match.
