    Fallen Cricketer Phillip Hughes Commemorated Via #PutOutYourBats

    Phillip Hughes, 1988–2014.

    Following the tragic loss of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes, who died yesterday at 25, the world has united to commemorate him with the #PutOutYourBats campaign.

    The campaign sees people putting their cricket bats out at the front of their houses to pay respect.
