The chief executive of the International Cricket Council said yesterday, that it was "unlikely" rules on the bowling of bouncers would be tightened despite the tragic death of Phillip Hughes.

Australia batsman Hughes died on Thursday, two days after he was struck on the neck and knocked unconscious by a bouncer from Sean Abbott while batting for South Australia against New South Wales in a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

ICC chief executive David Richardson said it was too soon to say if there would be a clamp down on bouncers but that his first thought was that the current restrictions would remain in place.
