  • Abbott recalls anguish over Hughes' death

    The first person to call triple-zero is expected to give evidence at the Phillip Hughes inquest.

The first person to call triple-zero after South Australian batsman Phillip Hughes was felled by a cricket ball is expected to give evidence at a Sydney inquest on Wednesday.

The evidence from then-Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust employee Scott Henderson comes after it was confirmed the bowler who delivered the fatal ball will not be called to testify in person.

Hughes was hit on the side of the neck by a short ball from NSW bowler Sean Abbott during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground in November 2014.
