It is pertinent to mention here that a cricketer's death in Australia is always terrifying and brings back the heartbreaking memories of Phil Hughes. To brush your memory, during a session of the Sheffield Shield match between South Australia and New South Wales at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 25 November 2014, Hughes, batting on 63 runs, was struck in the neck by the ball after missing an attempted hook shot to a bouncer from New South Wales bowler Sean Abbott.

Hughes was wearing a helmet, but the ball struck an unprotected area just below his left ear. He collapsed before receiving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and was subsequently taken to St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, where he underwent surgery and was placed into an induced coma. Ultimately, on the morning of Thursday, 27 November 2014, Hughes died from the injuries that he had sustained two days earlier, three days before his 26th birthday. Although there is no connection between Hughes and David Orange's death, their demise has left the Australian heartbroken.
