Family, cricketers await Hughes findings

AAP logoAAP 14/10/2016

The Australian cricket community and the family of Phillip Hughes must wait until next month to learn whether recommendations from the inquest into the late batsman's untimely death will change the sport.

The inquest has heard graphic and emotive evidence from players, officials and authorities present when Hughes was fatally struck by a short-pitched delivery from NSW bowler Sean Abbott during a Sheffield Shield match in November 2014.

The inquiry has deepened a rift between the former Test batsman's family and those summoned to the witness box, with claims of threatening sledges, cover-ups and a slack emergency response.

NSW Coroner Michael Barnes will release on November 4 his recommendations, which are expected to canvass protective equipment, playing conditions and emergency management.
