In Australia, as a mark of respect, people are putting their cricket bats in their windows and in their front/backyards. Cricketers and fans tweeted their pictures with bats in their windows with hashtag "#putoutyourbats". Later cricketers from all over the world, including batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, joined for the campaign.
Also, Cricket Australia (CA) has written to all clubs and schools to honour Hughes.
In a unique gesture, batsmen will retire at 63 not out and games will be reduced to 63 overs per side in junior and club matches. (Tragic end of Raman Lamba)
The 25-year-old Hughes was batting on 63 when he was hit by a Sean Abbott bouncer at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), playing for South Australia against New South Wales (NSW).
After being hospitalised, Hughes never regained consciousness and died on Thursday.
CA also thanked the cricket community and the Australian public for the overwhelming amount of love and support.
"Cricket Australia would like to thank the cricket community and the Australian public for the overwhelming amount of love and support given to Phillip and the Hughes family through touching tributes," CA said today.
CA recommended club (Grade/Premier and Community) and school cricket continues as scheduled this weekend though the decision to play is at the discretion of clubs.
