Sean Abbott was troubled for many days
For a long time after this incident, Sean Abbott had put forth his point. He wrote telling his mind, I always liked bowling in front of Philip, he used to present a very difficult challenge for me. I knew very well that I would have to work very hard to get him out. I don’t think I could ever get him out.
When Philip was hit by the ball, I saw him getting uncomfortable and ran towards him. I was holding the right side of his head. Even after Philip was taken away in the medical cab, he did not stay on the ground for long and then returned to the changing room. After that when I went to the change room, I was feeling very strange. I was sad and could not think of anything. Was registering in the head. People were coming to me one by one but I don’t remember anything what all of them said. Everything seemed a blur and I was feeling faint. I was feeling very tired and I continued to feel so for the next several days.
