[Cricketer NOT baseball player] Phil Hughes dies after “pitch” to the head

Thought this would be of interest.  I’m sure you can find video of it somewhere.  Basically, from the photo I saw, it managed to catch him below/behind the ear where the cricket helmet offers no protection.  The estimate I saw had the ball clocked at about 85 MPH (not sure at what point that measurement is taken) and it of course bounced before it got to him.
