Bayman, thank you for sharing the Chatfield story. Hope you did not ask him unknowingly, "Did you ever bowl in your life?" Just as Tony Greig had asked an oldish man (who turned out to be Don Bradman) in1971, "Did you play any cricket in your younger days?" I am sure Bradman, Greig, our friend Vinay Verma and Phil Hughes must be discussing cricket in heaven. Bless their souls. Bayman, Can you recall any other on-field cricket fatality apart from Bedkober's?

What a tragedy! May Phil Hughes' soul rest in peace! I remember chatting with him two years ago at the SCG nets. I told him that his dashing stroke-play reminded me of Sehwag. And he modestly replied, "But Sehwag is a great batsman." A likeable personality, Phil Hughes!
