that's more time than is given for thousands of people who gave their lives and died during conflicts.

Aussies are very good at the wailing and the gnashing of the teeth as much the same way they are at whingeing.

They still have a remembrance ceremony for the seven people who died in the Newcastle earthquake. Meanwhile 1500 people are killed on the roads each year with barely a whimper.

So basically they're all liverpool fans.

Lets face it, they were going to do something to recognize and acknowledge Phil Hughes in some way. Do it prior to play, and get on with the game. No issue with it at all.

I agree, do something but 63 seconds is showing more respect than to others who did more.

Yes, an extra 3 seconds by the sound of it.

This is the first from the Australian Cricket team/supporters?

And as many as people see fit.

Talk about overkill. Or was it a killer over?
