Sad moments of mourning at Australian Cricketer’s funeral

Tributes poured in for Hughes. 25 who died last Thursday folllowing a ball hit to the face in a Cricket game

Phillip Hughes was looked upon as a shining star, young and full of dreams that at 25, he would have captained the Australian test cricket team.

What looked like a minor injury caused the biggest reality which many Australians wish today was just a nightmare never to happen.

A bouncer from 22 year-old knocked Phil into a coma, a temporary unconsciousness that he never recovered from as he was declared dead two days after.

Tributes poured in, and sympathisers trooped out for the state burial to mark his laying to rest on Tuesday.

Photos from the event show mourners; family, friends, and mates gather together in a sorrow mood to bid Phillip goodbye.
