Remembering Phil Hughes: A life lost too soon

Phillip Joel Hughes was not just another Australian cricketer. The precocious talent was way more than his 26 centuries in first-class cricket. Hughes was loved by everyone in the world who knew him.

According to his cricketing mate, Tim Ludeman, he had the attitude of “Just chill bruz I got this”, even in the toughest of times. There was no dressing room in the world in which he would not have been welcomed. That was the beauty of his nature. The cattle boy was known for his humour and the ease with which he used to lighten even the tensest moments.

Philip Hughes had a thrilling style of batting, with on-field flamboyance the lad was always a delight for the cameramen.

Tony Abbott, the then Prime Minister of Australia had said, “He was loved, admired and respected by his teammates and by legions of cricket fans.”

For anyone who has ever breathed cricket, the date of 27 November when Phil Hughes lost his life would always be the toughest. Phil died three days shy of what would have been his 26th birthday.

Phil indeed left the world too early but his soul shall always remain immortal in the hearts of fans, family and friends.
