Narendra Modi pays tribute to Phil Hughes

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today joined the cricket world in mourning the death of young Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, who lost his life after being hit by a bouncer.

"Heart-rending funeral in Australia. Phil Hughes, we will miss you. Your game & exuberance won you fans all over! RIP," Modi tweeted as thousands gathered in Hughes' home town of Macksville to bid farewell to the batsman. Hughes died last week after being hit on the head by a bouncer during a domestic game. Had he survived, Hughes would have turned 26 last Sunday. The India-Australia Test series schedule was reworked following the tragedy to allow the home side's players some time to grieve the loss of their teammate.
