Commentator Simon Hughes Announces Sean Abbott, Refers to Phillip Hughes’ Death; Gets Criticized

Phillip Hughes was one of the brightest cricketers Australia has ever produced. The southpaw played quite a few matches, donning the national colors. However, life turned out to be harsh for the left-handed batsman. Back on November 27, 2014, Hughes passed away at the tender age of 26. The unfortunate incident took place prior to India’s tour of Australia during a first-class match.

Sean Abbott bowled a short ball that hit the head of Hughes, leading the latter get admitted into a hospital. Hughes was later declared dead, which turned out to be one of the darkest phases of Cricket Australia. Abbott was really shocked when he received this news.

Recently, Abbott took the field in Australia’s third T20I of the ongoing three-match series against Pakistan at the Perth Stadium. Before the start of the game, the commentators analyzed the playing elevens. Abbott replaced leg-spinner Adam Zampa, who went wicket-less in the first two games.

Before this game, Abbott took part in a solitary ODI and three T20Is and managed only a couple of wickets in those games. However, he has been an integral part of the New South Wales and the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League (BBL). The Windsor-born is more than a handy prospect with bat and ball. After the Simon Hughes comment, the Twitterati couldn’t believe that the commentator put forth such a sensitive issue on live TV.
