There can be no sadder way for cricketers, or sportsmen for that matter, to lose their life than while playing the game they passionately love. On Thursday, Phillip Hughes, unfortunately, joined the list of cricketers who have passed away as a result of sustaining injuries on the field.   Here are a list of players who have died after getting injured on the cricket field:

#1 Phillip Hughes

The Australia batsman was struck on the head by a bouncer off the bowling of Sean Abbott during a Sheffield Shield match between South Australia and New South Wales last November. He fractured his skull and suffered massive bleeding in his brain as a result, and was operated upon in a Sydney hospital.

The operation, however, was ultimately in vain as Hughes died of his injuries a couple of days later, bringing an unfortunate end to what was turning out to be a promising cricketing career.
