Cricket fans have paid tribute to the late Test batsman Phillip Hughes on the first anniversary of his death. The 25-year-old cricketer was struck on the head by a short delivery while playing for South Australia against New South Wales during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 25 November last year. He died in hospital two days later. The hashtag #63notout, referring to Hughes’s score when the accident occurred, was trending in Australia on Friday as fans remembered his legacy before cricket’s first day-night Test. The third Test – the first to use a pink ball – starts in Adelaide on Friday on the anniversary, but at the request of Hughes’s family commemorations will be low-key. Both sides will wear black armbands, as will players contesting three Sheffield Shield games around Australiathat also start on the same day. A tribute package will be screened at 4.08pm referring to Hughes’s Test cap number, 408. Michael Clarke, the former Australia captain who made an emotional speech at Hughes’s funeral, wrote in Sydney’s Daily Telegraph, “I think about Hughesy and miss him every day.” At the time of Hughes’s death Cricket Australia adjusted the official scorecard from his final match so that he would not be remembered as “retired hurt”. “It might seem like a little thing, but it’s an important distinction,” said its chief executive, James Sutherland. “Phillip will forever remain 63 not out.” “I am sorry phil” writes Abott on the pink ball which made Phil 63 not out forever. And his death cause of by this ball. In December last year CA trademarked the term “63 not out” to stop people profiting from Hughes’ death, a purely “defensive” agreement secured in conjunction with the late cricketer’s management “to prevent others trying to exploit Phillip’s memory”, a CA spokesperson told CNN at the time. The #63notout hashtag trending on Friday appears to have caught on organically, without involvement from CA. It has been used to remember Hughes irregularly over the past 12 months, though confusingly it was being used as recently in September to refer to Queen Elizabeth’s 63 years on the throne. At the time of Hughes’s fatal injury last year, he was remembered with the hashtag #PutOutYourBats, where fans around the world shared photos of their cricket bats at their doors. #PutOutYourBats had something of a resurgence on Friday but did not trend. Hugh Muir wrote after Hughes’s death that the #PutOutYourBats campaign was “one of those occasions when social media allows people around the world to make a small gesture”.
