Changing Rules Of Cricket After The Death Of Australian Batsman

The cricketing world has been united in grief and shock at the death of Australia batsman Phillip Hughes.
The 25-year-old died on Thursday as a result of the injuries sustained when he was struck by a ball while batting for South Australia against New South Wales.
For a while, the sport stopped, not only to pay tribute to the talented left-hander, but also to consider if more could have been done to prevent the freakishly unusual set of circumstances that took his life.
Here, BBC Sport looks at how cricket might change in the aftermath of Hughes’s death.

When will it be played again?

Almost immediately.
The second day of the third Test between Pakistan and New Zealand was postponed on Thursday, but that match will resume on Friday. England are set to play the second one-day international of their tour of Sri Lanka on Saturday.
But, naturally, it is in Australia where some sense of cricketing normality will be hardest to restore.
