Kohli, Shastri, Fletcher to attend Hughes's funeral


Virat Kohli will attend the funeral of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes on Wednesday.

 He will be joined by team director Ravi Shastri, coach Duncan Fletcher and team manager Arshad Ayub.

Three or four other Indian players are expected to join them and a final decision will be made once the team reaches Brisbane on Monday.

The funeral will be held on Wednesday, December 3, in Hughes’ hometown of Macksville.

The left-handed batsman died on Thursday after being hit by a bouncer in a Sheffield Shield game two days prior, sparking an outburst of emotion throughout the country.
