AAP logoAAP 10/10/2016 Adrian Warren

THE INQUEST INTO CRICKETER PHIL HUGHES DEATH: WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR

* State Coroner Michael Barnes is looking at whether the nature of play contributed to risk, the response to Hughes' injury and whether different equipment could make players safer.

* The incident occurred around 2.23pm on November 25 2014 in a Sheffield Shield game between NSW and South Australi at the SCG.

* Three separate 000 calls were made

* The ambulance carrying Hughes left the SCG at 3.17pm

WITNESSESS ON DAY ONE

* Among those giving evidence on Monday were former Australian Test wicketkeeper Brad Haddin, who was NSW captain for the match, and another NSW and Australian representative paceman Doug Bollinger

* Counsel for Hughes' family Greg Melick SC suggested Bollinger said words to the effect of "I'm going to kill you" or "I'm going to kill youse" to Hughes or his batting partner Tom Cooper before the fatal incident

" I don't recall saying that," Bollinger said at the Downing Centre on Monday. "I may have but I don't think so"

* In a earlier written statement Bollinger said he didn't remember sledging Hughes at all but said it's possible he may have said something to Cooper

* Haddin. like Bollinger a former test and NSW teammate of Hughes, said the game had been played in good spirits and couldn't recall Bollinger "mouthing off"

* Australian Test and one-day vice captain David Warner, another former Test and NSW teammate of Hughes, in his statement indicated there was a plan to bowl at or over leg stump to move Hughes backward

* Haddin and Bollinger both said they had no recollection of such a plan.

WHAT'S AHEAD

* Warner, who is currently representing Australia in South Africa, is listed to give evidence by video at some stage, while Cooper will give evidence in court on Tuesday.
