The family of late cricketer Phillip Hughes have shaken their heads and muttered in seeming disbelief at the testimony of a Cricket Australia official, who says he didn't know about their concerns about the nature of play during investigations into the death of the batsman.

Sports medicine and sports science manager Alex Kountouris told a Sydney inquest on Thursday he "absolutely" did not know of the family's worries when he decided not to interview players or umpires for a 2015 report that ended up focusing on the response to Hughes' injuries.

Hughes' mother, Virginia, and sister, Megan, shook their heads at Mr Kountouris' denial, while his father, Greg, appeared to mouth an obscenity.
