Hughes died on Thursday afternoon after being struck during Sheffield Shield match against NSW on Tuesday.

Jackson added the tragedy had affected everyone, not just professional athletes.

“Absolutely, I think everyone was hit pretty hard,” Jackson said.

“I didn’t know him but I definitely shed a few tears for him and his family and everyone in the cricket community.

“As athletes, we respect what everyone does in the sporting world, so it’s something we’ll talk about as a team and decide what we’ll do.”

“It’s tragic for everyone in sport whenever something like that happens to a high-profile athlete,” coach Carrie Graf said.
