ACA Statement - Phillip Hughes Inquest

4 March, 2017

The Australian Cricketers' Association, on behalf of all its members, recognise the incredibly difficult time that the Hughes family has been through over the past two years. Phillip Hughes was a much admired member and he continues to be missed.

We will continue to offer support for the family and the players involved in this terrible accident.

The ACA endorses all of the recommendations made by the NSW Coroner today, and we will continue to work with Cricket Australia to seek to ensure that these OH&S improvements are investigated and implemented as a matter of priority.

The safety of all players in all formats of the game, across all stadia, continues to be our number one priority, and we support any steps that may be taken to ensure that the tragic death of a cricketer in their workplace never happens again.
