The funeral for Phillip Hughes has drawn together his family, friends, team-mates and other notable Australians in mourning.
The service is being held in the small Australian town of Macksville, Hughes’s home town.
Current and former cricket stars, including Michael Clarke and the entire Australian team have been joined by the likes of Prime Minister Tony Abbott in the relatively humble venue for the funeral.
Other mourners have gathered to watch the funeral service on big screens erected in Macksville and other venues such as the SCG and Adelaide oval.
The funeral service is being televised live on the ABC in Australia as well as NVTV in India.
Phil Hughes died last week after being struck in the head and neck by a cricket ball during a match at the SCG.
