The fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2014-15 will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Not long ago, the game of cricket saw its most tragic moment at the Sydney Cricket Ground when Phillip Hughes got struck by a bouncer and passed away after two days.
This will be Australia’s first Test at the SCG after Phillip Hughes’ tragic demise and it will take Australia and the entire fraternity back to the moment that shook all of us.
Australian Shane Watson was one of four members of the Australian cricket team who were in the field on November 25 when Hughes collapsed on the ground after getting hit in the head.
“It’s the first time I’ve been back here since just before Phil’s funeral. It was always a time that I wasn’t really looking forward to, coming back to the ground,” Watson was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald Saturday.
“But in the end, enough time has sort of passed to be able to find my own personal way to be able to deal with what happened to Phil. I’m sure once I get out into the middle and playing, those visions will be coming back” Watson added.
Watson said it will be difficult for the Australians to go back to the place where they lost their beloved mate, but they will make sure they go out with a positive frame of mind and play to win the Test match.
“We’ve only really come together just now, so I’m sure we will (address the issue) over the next couple of days, especially the guys who were on the field at that moment. I still haven’t been out in the middle yet so I’m sure once I go out there all those memories will come flooding back very quickly,” Watson said.
