Post Hughes' knock-out, 'struggling' Sean Abbott returns to SCG
Sean Abbott, the New South Wales bowler, who felled South Australia's Phil Hughes with his bouncer during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday, returned to the SCG yesterday surrounded by teammates and counselors.
Abbott (22), was seen casually dressed and wearing sunglasses even as he hardly interacted with anyone.
The Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) yesterday said they were monitoring Abbott closely after it was reported that the young pacer was struggling mentally even as many former Australian fast bowlers came out in support of their fellow speedster.
"Abbott has got a lot of support around him from his teammates and also the counselling services," ACA CEO Alistair Nicholson said.
