Man Petitions Madras High Court to Restrain Team India From Continuing Aussie Tour.
In the wake of the Phil Hughes tragedy, a man moved the Madras High Court yesterday for restraining the Indian team from continuing its tour of Australia, saying pitches in that country are bouncy and players could face a threat to their lives.
Petitioner K Praveen Kumar of Pudukottai district said four cricketers had died since 1870 after being hit by a cricket ball.
The doctor who attended on Hughes had said the injury he suffered was catastrophic.
The petition will come up for hearing before the bench here next week.
