Phil Hughes has been moved into an induced coma while his surgery is underway

Phil Hughes has moved into an induced coma while his surgery is underway. Clearly a head injury of some sort caused by a direct hit to the head. Lets all wish him a full and speedy recovery. Who can believe this can happen in Cricket – and that to from a bouncer. Is it time to re-look at the safety standards of the helmets and other cricketing gear ?
